Marijuana Licenses in California
As of January 1st, 2018 the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) requires licensing to engage in any commercial marijuana activity. Licensure is divided between the Bureau of Cannabis Control, a division within the Department of Consumer Affairs, the State Department of Public Health, and the Department of Food and Agriculture. One of the first steps to opening a cannabis business is obtaining the right type of licensing and going through the proper legal process. Entrepreneurs can apply for various licenses including marijuana cultivation, manufacturing, retail, events production, or transportation and distribution. There is also a microbusiness license available for businesses that engage in multiple fields of marijuana distribution.
With the commercial distribution of marijuana becoming one of the fastest-growing industries in California, it’s important to understand the regulations and legal processes involved in getting licensed and being compliant with state laws.
