The Cannabis Advisory Committee will be holding a series of subcommittee meetings on Thursday, March 1 in Sacramento.

Nine subcommittees voted at the February 13 meetings to hold on March 1 an additional subcommittee meeting to finalize their recommendations on the state cannabis licensing authorities’ formal rulemaking packages. The subcommittee’s recommendations will then be presented for adoption at the next general meeting of the Cannabis Advisory Committee on March 15 in Los Angeles (Millennium Biltmore Hotel – 506 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles). If adopted, the subcommittee recommendations will serve as the committee’s formal recommendations to the state cannabis licensing authorities.
