Cannabis Licensing Authorities Release Proposed Emergency Medicinal and Adult-Use Regulations

California’s three state cannabis licensing authorities have announced that proposed emergency licensing regulations for commercial medicinal and adult-use cannabis have been posted online and are available to the public for review.

The announcement was made during the Cannabis Advisory Committee‘s first meeting held November 16, 2017, in Sacramento.

The Department of Consumer Affairs’ Bureau of Cannabis Control, Department of Public Health’s Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch, and Department of Food and Agriculture’s CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Division each developed the new regulations to reflect the law defined in California’s Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) which was signed by Governor Brown in June of 2017.
