CHEAC Summaries on Emergency Cannabis Regulations Now Available

Late last week, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), and the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) released their proposed emergency regulations for medicinal and adult use cannabis. Each licensing authority developed new regulations to reflect the law defined in California’s Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) that was passed by the Legislature and signed into law by the Governor this summer.

CHEAC has prepared summaries of the proposed emergency cannabis regulations:

CDPH Summary – Emergency Regulations on Cannabis Manufacturing

CDFA Summary – Emergency Regulations on Cannabis Cultivation

BCC Summary – Emergency Regulations on Distribution, Transportation, Dispensaries and Laboratories

All CHEAC Members are strongly encouraged to read through the summaries and full text of emergency regulations proposed by the three state licensing agencies. The regulations are expected to be effective beginning in December 2017, ahead of the January 1, 2018, implementation date for state commercial cannabis licenses. It is important to note, however, that the State will only be able to issue licenses to businesses that are in full compliance with all local laws and regulations.
