On July 12, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom approved Assembly Bill No. 141 (AB-141), an act amending, adding, and repealing various sections of the State’s legal codes to implement provisions of the Budget Act of 2021.
The bill’s most notable updates to existing law include explaining the function of the new Department of Cannabis Control (DCC), setting state provisional license sunset guidelines, and establishing a cannabis trade sample scheme, among other changes. While there is surely more to come in the way of implementation, the following provides the first in a series of snapshots of changes expressed in the final version of the bill, this week focusing on the DCC. The information presented comes from California Legislative Information.
