On July 1, Virginia’s marijuana laws are changing to allow adults 21 years and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana, and to grow in their homes up to four plants per household. Visit cannabis.virginia.gov for details on the requirements for legal possession of marijuana.
Marijuana is a drug, and is dangerous for children to consume. Store marijuana, including whole plants, out of reach of children. Be especially careful with edibles such as candies and baked goods. These are attractive to children and they could easily eat a very high dose.
If a child consumes marijuana, or if you are concerned about an adult’s reaction after consuming marijuana, contact the National Poison Centers’ hotline at (800) 222-1222.
