  • The Attorney General published a document to outline the cannabis regulations in California.
  • The document contains no changes but includes a history of the industry.

California has been one of the more progressive states to legalize cannabis for both medical and recreational use. Now, Xavier Becerra, the Attorney General, is releasing a new document that is filled with 16 pages of current regulations and guidelines surrounding the cannabis industry. However, there are some people who believe that these guidelines could potentially include potential enforcement action against illegal growing.

There’s no added information added to the regulations, but there’s a lengthy history of the cannabis legislation and guidelines through the years. Part of this information is on the way to deal with multiple issues in the industry, including medicinal cannabis. Lt. Erik Raney from the sheriff’s office in Santa Barbara County stated, “The Sheriff’s Office will continue to investigate and hold accountable those individuals and businesses that operate outside of the scope of the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act.”

Kristine Bates, who is part of Elevate Lompoc, stated that this document will make sure that a higher standard is held by cannabis collectives and cooperatives, especially in the process of getting licensed by the state.

Bates added,

“The only new thing as of January 10th is that now must have a state license, so it really won’t affect this business at all. It just kind of brings everyone up to the same level.”

The report is not meant exclusively for the enforcement of the law, but to also provide information to medical patients and physicians. Some of this information includes their rights in the cannabis industry, and the limitations on their involvement.
