A new California law went into effect January 1, 2018 that bans smoking or ingesting any cannabis products while behind the wheel of a vehicle. This includes cannabis edibles.
The new statute also regulates how and where consumers can store marijuana while in a car. Similar to California’s open alcohol container rules, contents should be sealed and locked away in the trunk or similarly out of reach. Violations of the new law banning smoking and ingesting marijuana products while driving is considered an infraction.
