In 2016, the voters of California approved Proposition 64, or the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, which became law on January 1, 2018. Under the new law, adults over the age of 21 can legally purchase recreational marijuana from licensed retailers throughout the State. Cannabis cultivation and manufacturing also became legal.
The new law granted Cities and Counties the power to regulate how cannabis could be sold and distributed in their jurisdictions, which has led to a hodge podge of confusing regulations that can vary from each municipality. Some have outright bans while others have embraced cannabis retail and cultivation operations.

We can help you navigate this new and exciting business opportunity by providing you the advice you need and the experience to avoid the pitfalls many new businesses experience, especially those in this highly regulated field.
