Medical cannabis rules summit
The California Cannabis Industry Association is putting on a summit at 9 a.m. at Crest Theater, 1013 K St. in Sacramento, to discuss how to make new state medical marijuana rules work. Speakers will include state Board of Equalization Member Fiona Ma, who has pushed for safer pot banking; longtime law enforcement lobbyist John Lovell; and representatives of the State Water Resources Control Board and the California Medical Association.
After the morning confab, the action shifts to the Capitol, where a trio of Assembly committees will hold a hearing on the incoming regulations. Lawmakers will hear from officials from the Department of Consumer Affairs, Department of Public Health and Department of Food and Agriculture – each agency will have a role in issuing licenses or overseeing a section of the industry – and from folks representing the industry and local governments. The hearing starts at 1:30 p.m. in room 4202.
