HOME CULTIVATION

STATE-LICENSED DISPENSARIES ALLOWED

Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday, October 9, 2015 signed into law a legislative package of bills that seeks to provide regulations for California's medical cannabis industry. The Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act creates a new state agency within the Department of Consumer Affairs to develop rules and licensing procedures for authorized medical cannabis dispensaries. Dispensaries must be compliant with local guidelines prior to receiving a state license. State-licensed dispensaries will be permitted to operate on a 'for profit' basis. However, the new regulations will not override municipal moratoriums, nor will they prohibit the collection of local sales taxes on marijuana purchases in communities that presently impose them.

The new law takes effect on January 1, 2016. However, regulations under the new law are not expected until early 2017 and licensing is not anticipated to begin until early 2018.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA STATUTES

  • Cal. Health & Saf. Code, §11362.7 (2003)
  • Cal. Health & Saf. Code, §§ 11362.7 - 11362.83 (2003)
  • California Compassionate Use Act 1996, Cal. Health & Saf. Code, § 11362.5 (1996)

CAREGIVERS

Yes, primary caregiver is the individual, designated by a qualified patient or by a person with an identification card, who has consistently assumed responsibility for the housing, health, or safety of that patient or person. The caregiver must be 18 years of age or older (unless the primary caregiver is the parent of a minor child who is a qualified patient or a person with an identification card).

ESTIMATED NUMBER OF REGISTERED PATIENTS

  • No state-registration is required in California, although patients may elect to voluntarily apply for a county-issued identification card. It is estimated that five percent of California adults report having ever used medical marijuana. A separate estimate from California  places the total number of current medical cannabis consumers between 2 and 3 percent.

RECIPROCITY
