Statement: UCBA wishes to express our sincere congratulations and support of Governor Newsom’s appointment of Nicole Elliott as the Director of The California Department of Cannabis Control

UCBA wishes to express our sincere congratulations and support of Governor Newsom’s appointment of Nicole Elliott as the Director of The California Department of Cannabis Control.  UCBA recognizes Mrs. Elliott’s unique and extensive experience regulating cannabis on both a local and state level.  We value working with her to establish the California Cannabis market as the nation’s finest example of regulation.

 

We look forward to her leadership in assisting the industry with addressing ongoing challenges such as:

  • Market expansion, where 80% of the state continues to prohibit legal cannabis activities 
  • Streamlining regulatory barriers
  • Promoting the viability of the legal industry through addressing high taxes and enforcement
  • Providing equitable pathways to licensure for both legacy operators and those harmed by the previous cannabis enforcement policies

UCBA is eager to support and continue to work with Mrs. Elliott as she enters her new position as the lead regulator of the nation’s largest cannabis market.  

We congratulate and look forward to Mrs. Elliott’s leadership. 

Jerred Kiloh
