California Regulated Cannabis: Reboot in 2020!!

The merriment of the holiday season has not overtaken California’s cannabis industry as 2019 comes to a close. The Legislature, Governor Newsom’s office, cannabis regulatory agencies (principally BCC, CalCannabis, CDPH, and CDTFA), law enforcement agencies, and a multitude of other groups and individuals interested in this industry have been confronted with the reality of a disaster.

Greed & Cannabis

Greed & Cannabis

Our interest in California’s cannabis industry extends far beyond taxes. We have a substantial personal and historical perspective relating to cannabis in California. Members of our staff have been involved in California’s cannabis industry since Haight-Ashbury was the place to be in the mid-1960s. Members of our team have witnessed both the damage and the benefit of cannabis. Members of our staff have observed first-hand the injuries the federal government has caused through misguided, oppressive, and racist policies relating to cannabis. “Cannabis is a dangerous drug.

Oklahoma – Article: Cannabis has WSS sales taxes budding Mayor Carr believes medical marijuana is responsible for increase

Carr attributes the sales tax revenue growth to medical marijuana. She said she had mixed emotions when medical marijuana was placed on the Oklahoma ballot June 28, 2018, and began to be sold across the state later that year in October 2018, and she is still uneasy.
