2.  Amanda Raimen continues from our interview on October 24 the explanation of the Proposition 64, Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).  To remove cannabis from the list of state contraband would mean that marijuana smell could not be used as reason for search of one’s person and property in California, but that penalties still exist,though decreased, for those younger than the age of 21 if those young people are caught possessing, selling or cultivating any amount of the plant. Growing the plants would invite such liabilities regarding young people, which parents need to be aware of before cultivating the plants.
