The focal point of the meeting will be to discuss and provide recommendations for consolidating the three licensing authorities regulations into one comprehensive set of regulations applicable to California’s cannabis industry.

This information will be used as part of the process for the plan announced by Governor Newsom in January to establish one Department of Cannabis Control to serve as the regulator for the cannabis industry and as the single point of contact for licensees and local governments.
The Cannabis Advisory Committee advises the Bureau, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and the California Department of Public Health on the development of regulations that help protect public health and safety and do not perpetuate the illegal market for cannabis.
