California Rushing to Meet January 2018 Legalization Deadline
With only four months left until full legalization in California, regulations are literally being adopted on the fly.
The state needs to fill out its commissions and offices by hiring up to 82 people. Software has to be written in time to start accepting applications from the thousands of entrepreneurs hoping to sell weed. In fact, regulations governing sales aren’t even properly in place.
Lori Ajax, the director of the California Bureau of Cannabis Control (formerly the Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation AKA BMCR or, colloquially, “Bummer”), told the Sacramento Bee that California’s entire regulatory scheme was a work in progress.
Considering that voters approved Proposition 64 only this past November, delays are to be expected, but they are still cause for concern. And it’s worth mentioning that California has had medical marijuana since 1996.
