Bureau of Cannabis Control – housed within the California Department of Consumer Affairs, the Bureau will license retailers, distributors, third-party testing laboratories and microbusinesses. http://bcc.ca.gov/

Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch – housed within the California Department of Public Health, MCSB will license manufacturers of cannabis products. This includes nearly all non-flower products (edibles, oils, tinctures, etc.) https://www.cdph.ca.gov

CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing – housed within the California Department of Food & Agriculture, CalCannabis will license cultivators and implement the state’s Track-and-Trace system to record movement of cannabis from seed to sale. https://www.cdfa.ca.gov

 Cannabis Criminal Defense

Have you been unjustly arrested or cited for any alleged Cannabis offense? New California Laws have decriminalized certain Cannabis offenses for people 21 and over. Meaning: these adult use activities are now lawful activities that do not provide law enforcement with probable cause for search or arrest.

Expunge or AUMA – Clean-Up Criminal Record

The Adult Use of Marijuana Act “AUMA”, or more commonly known as Proposition 64, provides a legal mechanism to persons with prior sentences for violations of certain California, Cannabis offenses, i.e., Possession for Sale – Possession – Planting – Cultivating – Transporting – to petition the Court to recall or dismissal of the sentence thus restoring their good name and employability.

What is the difference between the AUMA and Expungement?

 The difference between the AUMA, Business & Professions Code § 11361.8, and Expungement or Dismissal under Penal Code § 1203.4 is that if the court grants your request to resentence the offense as a misdemeanor or infraction under the AUMA, thereafter the crime will be treated as a misdemeanor or infraction for all purposes, automatically restoring all of your civil rights which had been denied because of the felony conviction including relief of your obligation to register as a narcotics offender under Health & Safety Code § 11590.
