Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will examine key questions on 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. Insight and opinion on all these issues will be provided by a regulatory expert with years of expertise in influencing state and federal decision-making and policy.

Why Should You Attend:

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 become accustomed to in a state that has long become comfortable with its relatively unregulated condition.

This webinar will help attendees 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.

  • The history and use of cannabis sativa as a medicine will be reviewed.

  • A detailed review and critique of Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) will be presented.
  • The challenges and obstacles that remain in the way of full and effective implementation will be discussed.
