Cannabis Legalization in California and What You Need to Know Now: A FREE Webinar on September 14

lawyers2On Wednesday, September 14, 2016, from 1:30 PM to 2:45 PM (PDT), three of our California attorneys will be putting on a FREE webinar on Medical Marijuana and Legalization in California: What You Need to Know Now. Go here on Eventbrite to sign up for your free ticket to be able to attend.

California has been a pioneer in state medical marijuana legal reform since 1996 but, until recently, it has failed to keep up with federal cannabis enforcement priorities.

In 2015, California passed the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MCRSA), which creates a comprehensive licensing and regulatory system for medical marijuana businesses. And this November, Californians will vote on whether to legalize marijuana for adults 21 and up through the Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA). Needless to say, anyone currently involved with California’s cannabis industry, or looking to get into California’s marijuana market, needs to know about how these new laws and their eventual corresponding rules and regulations will impact them.

Three of our California marijuana business and regulatory lawyers (Tiffany Wu, Alison Malsbury, and Hilary Bricken) will be discussing the laws and rules you should know regarding current California medical marijuana laws, the MCRSA, the AUMA, and the corporate and regulatory transition that’s going to take place over the next two years. Robert McVay (our lead cannabis corporate law attorney) will be our moderator as we cover compliance issues, licensing standards, investment, the transition from a non-profit to a for-profit entity, and MCRSA and AUMA local law requirements.

To ensure audience questions get answered, we will be taking panelist questions on our Canna Law Blog Facebook page leading up to the webinar or you can email us with your questions at firm@harrisbricken.com. So, please send us your questions and we will do our best to answer them during the webinar.

We hope you can join us on September 14!
