Published in JAMA Pediatrics in August 2021, this cross-sectional study, conducted by a research team at the University of California, San Diego, examined the compliance of recreational cannabis dispensaries with underage access and exposure to products and marketing in California. The team identified and audited all the RCDs in California statewide (N = 700) between June 15 and September 15, 2019. Although RCDs in California were generally compliant with checking IDs, most RCDs did not check them until customers entered the premises. Considering the low rate of compliance with age-limit signage, minors may unintentionally or even intentionally enter RCDs.
