Cannabis.
Visit latimes.com - search: "Legal Weed in California" and learn stuff like this from writer Alex Wigglesworth:
If you are 21 or older, you can buy and possess up to 28.5 grams (a little over an ounce) of marijuana, up to 8 grams of cannabis concentrate and up to six live plants.

If you are between 18 and 20 years old, you can buy and possess up to 8 ounces of marijuana and 12 live plants, but only through the state’s medical marijuana program, which requires a physician’s recommendation.

Some cities have imposed stricter laws on the sale and consumption of cannabis within their borders.
