California is having a hard time figuring out regulations for their newly legal recreational cannabis industry. Governor Jerry Brown and his administration have proposed legislation that would merge the state’s two decade old medical industry with the new recreational laws, but Brown’s plan is facing criticism from opponents who say it gives too much power to big business cannabis capitalists. But while lawmakers stare down the ticking clock of 2018’s recreational sales start date, state regulators have put forward a brand new plan to clean up California’s medical industry, with a seed to sale structure that will hopefully take the guesswork out of shopping for pot.
According to SFGate, California cannabis regulators released the 144 page draft of the new rules Friday afternoon, and it will now enter a 45-day comment period before becoming law.
Included in that law would be a seed to sale cultivation system that requires each plant to be tracked and tested before it reaches dispensary shelves, an eight ounce per day purchasing limit for patients, and strict regulations for edibles that will cap doses at 10mg and entire packages at 100mg.
