As the birthplace of the cannabis movement, California has long been a leader in cannabis reform. From legalizing medical marijuana in 1996 to becoming the first state to legalize recreational cannabis in 2016, California is continuing to blaze a trail for the rest of the nation.
California has been a key player in cannabis legislation, hosting prominent events such as the “Weed the People” movement in 2014 which led to the passing of a statewide initiative allowing for the recreational use of cannabis. This was a huge leap forward in terms of cannabis reform and set the stage for other states to follow suit.
Cannabis has been a hot topic in California, and the state has made great strides in the past several years to ensure that the industry is regulated and operated responsibly. In 2017, it became the first state to form a Bureau of Cannabis Control, which is responsible for regulating the cannabis industry in the state. The Bureau is in charge of issuing licenses, tracking sales, and ensuring that businesses are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
Furthermore, California has implemented a “seed-to-sale” tracking system which allows for the monitoring of cannabis from the moment it is planted to when it is sold. This system ensures that cannabis is properly tracked and prevents it from being diverted to the black market.
The state of California has made great strides in the cannabis industry and continues to lead the nation in cannabis reform. By taking proactive steps to ensure that the industry is regulated and operated responsibly, California is setting the stage for other states to follow. Cannabis 21 Plus is proud to be a part of this movement and is committed to providing resources to ensure that the industry is operating safely and responsibly.
