If you are a legal cannabis grower in the state of California, or you wish to become one, you may have many questions regarding California state law. After all, you don’t want your business to end up outside of the law simply because you misunderstood the regulations or read an article online that had faulty information in it.

Laws Regarding Cannabis Growth in California

Two laws have been passed recently in California that have a major effect on the cannabis industry.

  1. The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) – This was approved on November 8, 2016 by voters.
  2. The Medical and Adult Use of Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) – This was passed in 2017 by state legislature in response to the proposition passed by voters the previous year.

These two acts together have resulted in the legalization of production, distribution, and commercial sale of cannabis in the state of California (at the state level – federal law still has restrictions in place though states have been allowed to enforce their own laws at this time).
