On July 1, 2021, marijuana was legalized for adults over 21 in Virginia. Now, adults can possess up to one ounce (28.3 grams) and grow up to four marijuana plants per household (not per person)! Please remember that it is illegal to use cannabis publicly and can only be used on private property with the owner's permission. It is illegal to buy or sell marijuana, including seeds, within the state. This means that you cannot purchase cannabis products or flower in Virginia, but the law states that sales will begin on January 1, 2024. Check back with us for updates on Virginia cannabis laws. Your best bet for buying weed legally within the state is to get a Virginia Medical Marijuana card and purchase from a state-licensed medical dispensary.
