On November 16, 2017, California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control, the Department of Public Health, and the Department of Food and Agriculture released over 270 pages of emergency regulations to implement cannabis business licensing for the Medicinal and Adult-Use Regulation and Safety Act (“MAUCRSA”). Licensing began on January 1, 2018.
Though these emergency regulations share some similarities with the withdrawn Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (“MCRSA”) rules, they also contain major changes and nuances important to anyone pursuing temporary and eventually annual licensing for commercial cannabis activity in California.
This webinar features four of Harris Bricken’s California-based cannabis attorneys, who discuss the recently issued emergency MAUCRSA rules that govern medicinal and adult use cannabis commercial activity and licensing. Hilary Bricken of our Los Angeles office moderates the discussion with Los Angeles attorney Julie Hamill and San Francisco attorneys Alison Malsbury and Habib Bentaleb, which is aimed at helping you better understand what these emergency rules mean for your California cannabis business. This discussion covers the licensing process for each license type, operational standards for all license types (including renewable energy requirements for cultivators), the 6-month “transitional” period for product and operations, major changes between the MCRSA and MAUCRSA rules, and outstanding issues and key unknowns posed by the rules.
The future of California’s newly regulated cannabis industry hinges on successful licensing and ongoing compliance with the MAUCRSA rules. If you plan on pursuing a California cannabis license or plan to work in any capacity with a California cannabis business, you should attend this free webinar to educate yourself on the “need to know now” information for upcoming licensing and compliance.
