Hilary Bricken Breaks Down the Changes Ahead for California Medical Marijuana Operators

Hilary Bricken  - Attorney at Canna Law Group

On the eve of Governor Brown signing three pieces of historic legislation that will overhaul California’s two-decade-old medical marijuana laws, Hilary Bricken of Canna Law Group shared her insight:

This past Friday I chaired a “Medical and Recreational Marijuana in Southern California” seminar in Santa Monica. During the seminar, Governor Brown signed into law the three bills that comprise the California Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA). Needless to say, this was big news for all of us at the seminar. This is also, of course, big news for California and especially for its medical marijuana operators. These bills mean California will soon be moving away from an unregulated gray marijuana marketplace to a state law regulated medical marijuana state regime. These bills mean that California will be getting the “robust regulations” the federal government requires from the states for the Department of Justice to be even minimally disengaged from what goes on with cannabis within the state. These bills also mean that California will be entering a new era where the Department of Justice (hopefully) finally cools its heels in the Golden State.
