ICYMI: California Has Solidified Its Marijuana Rules. Here’s Some of What You Need to Know.

There were some important changes to California’s marijuana regulations last week.

Let’s take it over to the Sacramento Bee.  

Gov. Jerry Brown and lawmakers recently struck a deal on a plan to blend Proposition 64 and medical marijuana laws previously approved by the Legislature. The goal of the more than 100-page piece of legislation is to help create a singular regulatory system governing pot in California.

The bill touches on a wide range of weed issues from rules for delivery companies to the advent of a special events permit that would legalize marijuana festivals.

Meanwhile, the California Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation and other state agencies are busy crafting regulations to begin issuing licenses to marijuana businesses on Jan. 1, 2018. These rules are a little more in the weeds, such as dictating the information required for a business application or spelling out allowable pesticide levels.

We touched on the issue of festivals Monday. You can read that article here.  

The Bee also offers up a list of Frequently Asked Questions and answers, including whether you can carry marijuana in your car (kind of), if insurance will cover your medical pot (no), how pot DUIs are measured (it’s complex), and whether you can get fired for marijuana use by your employer (yes).

What we’ve all been fearing is coming true. The federal administration has vowed to crackdown on marijuana usage and next week we could see those implications take effect.
