A: “John, you need to be at least 21 years old to possess marijuana and in order to possess it you still have to be inside your home in order to smoke it. Anything under 1 ounce which is about 28 grams of marijuana is legal to posesss in the state of Washington. Anything over that is not but the main thing is you need to be inside your house to be able to smoke marijuana.” — Ruston Police Chief Jeremy Kunkel
