On January 1, 2016, a trio of bills signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown went into effect that overhaul the regulation of medical cannabis in the Golden State for the first time in 20 years, known as the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA). The new laws call for regulations to be crafted by 2018; however, there is already a slew of new regulations to come into force in a state that has long become comfortable with its relatively unregulated condition.
Many key questions remain as to how California's future medical cannabis market will look like when it comes to regulation. In the next two years, multiple state agencies will be involved in filling in the blank spaces left by MMRSA. For example: What will licensure fees look like? How will "edibles" be regulated in California? In the background, a new President will be elected soon and this could influence the future of all state-based medical cannabis markets.
This webinar with expert speaker Erik R. Janus is intended to help you understand the pros and cons of MMRSA as well as the challenges and barriers that remain to full and effective implementation of a new, well-regulated medical cannabis market in the state of California. You will get insights and opinions on all the issues that affect the future of the medical cannabis markets in California from a regulatory expert with years of expertise in influencing state and federal decision-making and policy.
