Got a Provisional License from CDFA: Now What?

Back in September 27, 2018, Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1459, which allows the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to create a new “provisional” cannabis cultivation license as a bridge between temporary and annual cultivation licenses.

A provisional license acts in the same manner as an annual license, except it is not renewable, as required in Business and Professions Code section 26050.2, et. seq. (otherwise known as the Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act).
