3 Most Important Cannabis Regulation Resources for Your Business

Not to be confused with “statute”, “cannabis regulation”, as is implied by its name, regulates the cannabis market that was legalized by State statute. The cultivation, use, and distribution of medicinal marijuana were legalized in 1996. Proposition 64 legalized adult-use of cannabis by ballot measure. The Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) creates the general framework for the regulation of commercial medicinal and adult-use cannabis in California.

When it comes to the regulation being created, implemented, and enforced at the State level, there are three (3) essential regulatory resources to consult.
