Following the passage of Proposition 64, the State of California established an extensive body of regulations for commercial cannabis activity in the state. First, the State Legislature approved the Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act to create a licensing and regulatory system for commercial cannabis business. Subsequently, the state’s cannabis licensing agencies, the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Food and Agriculture, have promulgated a series of emergency regulations for commercial cannabis activity. The state licensing agencies are in the process of preparing non-emergency regulations, which should be finalized before the end of 2018. Please review the links below for more information about the state’s regulatory program.
