California Agencies Release Proposed Changes to Cannabis Regulations
The three California state cannabis licensing authorities released revised proposed regulations for commercial medicinal and adult-use cannabis businesses. The regulations were revised in response to public comments that were received by the licensing authorities in July and August of this year. Any written comments to the proposed revised regulations must be submitted by 5 p.m. on November 5, 2018.
In general, the proposed regulations relate to the structure and operation of cannabis businesses. Some of the regulations impact local control, including the Bureau of Cannabis Control’s (“Bureau”) draft regulation 5416(d) which would allow cannabis deliveries to occur in any jurisdiction in the State. The proposed revisions to the regulations, and summary of the changes (if available), can be viewed by clicking the following links:
Bureau’s revised regulations regulating retailers, distributors, testing laboratories, and microbusinesses, and a summary of those regulations.
CA Department of Food and Agriculture’s revised regulations regulating commercial cultivators.
