California became the first state to legalize the medical use of marijuana in 1996.

California became the first state to allow for the medical use of marijuana in 1996. In 2015, California adopted the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act to bring robust regulation to its medical marijuana industry. Under this Act, multiple state agencies are tasked with the oversight, licensing, and control of all medical marijuana businesses. The Act also allows cities and counties to further regulate or ban medical marijuana businesses. The Golden State has yet to legalize marijuana for recreational use.

The Canna Law Group’s California team helps medical marijuana and ancillary businesses throughout the state comply with the specific laws governing state licensing, corporate and regulatory compliance, and navigating local laws and regulations in their cities and counties.
