California was the first state to legalize cannabis for medical use, and while the Golden State wasn’t the first to legalize cannabis for adult use, California voters did approve legalization in 2016 by a very wide margin. The personal possession and cultivation provisions of the successful initiative have already taken effect, but the industry side of legalization implementation has been going through the rule-making phase. All cannabis industry eyes have been on California since legalization was passed because California is such a massive market.
Tomorrow is going to be a big milestone in the industry regulation process, with the California Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) expected to release regulations at the inaugural Cannabis Advisory Committee meeting. Cannabis activist Tom Angell tweeted about it earlier today:
