State Extends Expiration for Medical Cannabis Cards

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Thursday extending the expiration date for medical marijuana cards indefinitely. The governor cited difficulties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Newsom’s order applies to medical cannabis cards that would have expired after March 4, 2020.

“We are deeply appreciative of the governor’s efforts to ensure that medical cannabis patients, many with severe and debilitating conditions, will continue to have access to legal, quality cannabis products. This action is also consistent with the principle, which the governor has embraced, that cannabis is an essential business and that these products must be accessible to everyone,” said Amy Jenkins with the California Cannabis Industry Association.
