California State Policies




12:00 pm - 12:50 pm

California’s original medical marijuana law is the oldest in the nation, but its regulatory framework has lagged behind other states, leading to a robust grey and illicit market that continues to this day. Attendees will hear how California’s marijuana laws developed and how they compare to other states, including in areas of delivery, on-site consumption, legal protections, local control, and taxation. This session will also cover how those laws may need to evolve once federal law allows for interstate marijuana sales.
