Yesterday, June 27, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Senate Bill No. 94. Senate Bill No. 94 amends the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act and the Adult Use Cannabis Act (MCRSA) to create a single regulatory framework for both medical and recreational cannabis.
The bill amends MCRSA significantly by repealing the vertical integration requirements under MCRSA, amends the tax structure for cannabis, directs the California Department of Food and Agriculture to promulgate standards for “organic” cannabis and “origin” standards for cannabis.
