Laws and Regulations

The Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) creates the general framework for the regulation of commercial medicinal and adult-use cannabis in California. The text of MAUCRSA is available on the California Legislative Information website.

In January 2019, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) officially approved state regulations for cannabis businesses across the supply chain. These new regulations immediately took effect, meaning the previous emergency regulations are no longer in effect.
