The California Dept. of Tax and Fee Administration [“CDTFA”] just issued a set of regulations that apply to the “Marketplace Facilitator Act”. This new law which has been unnoticed by most in California’s cannabis industry could be applied to Weedmaps and others who facilitate sales of cannabis to California residents.Read More
We don’t have experiences that impress or “WOW” us very often. Perhaps we have become jaded. However, we had one today, and are still attempting to digest it. We spend most of our time working in the commercial cannabis industry in California – complaints about the complexity of licensing, tax reporting and regulatory compliance are constant. The implementation of the METRC compliance system in California became a running joke with single and double digit usage out of thousands of licensees.Read More

Who Is Inept: “NCIA does not appear in the registry of tax-exempt organizations maintained by the Office of the Attorney General very likely because NCIA has not registered to engage in business in California”
Who is Inept? – We were surprised a few days ago when we discovered California Cannabis Industry Association (“CCIA”) has been suspended by the Franchise Tax Board (“FTB”). At the moment CCIA lacks the authority to engage in business. We stumbled across this information quite inadvertently. We were checking to see if the National Cannabis Industry Association (“NCIA”) was authorized to engage in business in California as a foreign corporation.Read More
What about medical cannabis cooperatives? What about adult-use cannabis collectives and cooperatives? Depending on who you ask the answers will be, Yes, No or Maybe. All three of these answers may be correct answers to all of these questions. The questions are not as simple as they appear to be.Read More

We have spent the past couple of articles reviewing the differences between “bookkeepers”, “generic accountants”, and “professional accountants”, the final phrase being limited to certified public accountants [‘CPAs” in the United States. We add mention of Enrolled Agents [“EAs”] noting that they are “Circular 230 Practitioners” many of whom, are or have been employed by the Internal Revenue Service, and may be skilled at “Tax Resolution”.Read More
Bringing Back The War – A bit of background on illegal storefront dispensaries tells us And the enforcement in California will come from both state and local authorities. The City of Los Angeles recently launched a massive crackdown on unlicensed, illegal cannabis businesses, filing misdemeanor charges against more than 500 people and shutting down 105 illegal cannabis businesses, including cultivation operations, extraction labs, and delivery companies across the city. In Los Angeles, a charge of unlicensed commercial cannabis activity within the city carries a potential sentence of six months in jail and $1,000 in fines.Read More
On August 19, 2019, the Supreme Court of California issued a unanimous opinion in Union of Medical Marijuana Patients, Inc. (“UMMP”) v. City of San Diego. Except for the parties and the limited number of individuals who follow litigation involving environmental law, this case has moved through the California court system with little notice. ……..” Because the City found that adoption of the ordinance did not constitute a project for purposes of CEQA, it did not conduct any environmental review. Petitioner Union of Medical Marijuana Patients (UMMP) challenged the City’s failure to conduct CEQA review in a petition for writ of mandate, which was denied by the trial court.”Read More

We were prompted to write this article by the five items identified by California NORML in its news of the week. “News” relating to California’s cannabis industry appears to be of the same ilk as the “News” each day from our Capitol. “News” and “Fake News” like “Beauty” are in the eye of the beholder.Read More
