Cannabis – Rules and Regs and the State of California

It’s Monday morning and we are still distilling the “permanent industry rules draft” released by California state officials on Friday. Those officials being from the state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control, Department of Food and Agriculture, and Department of Public Health.

For KopSun, Marijuana Business Daily is the equivalent of the Wall Street Journal. According to Marijuana Business Daily, some of the biggest changes are:

  • Third party delivery companies will need a state marijuana commercial license, and tech platforms, such as Weedmaps, won’t be able to have direct profit sharing based on sales.

  • The amount of inventory allowed in a single delivery vehicle would lessen from $10,000 to $5,000.

  • Manufacturers will not have to identify THC and CBD contents before having product tested, affecting packaging and labeling.

  • Modification, as in easing, in testing requirements.

The article sums up the proposed draft as favorable and that the rules of the industry are becoming clear. For more specifics, visit Marijuana Business Daily.

Please note, there is a 15-day public comment period on the draft. If you’d like to comment before the Nov. 5 deadline, check out the proposed regulations.
