The California State Assembly has approved two medical marijuana-related bills, including one that would create a new type of license for MMJ “micro farmers” and another that addresses a host a of regulatory issues.
Both bills now head to the state Senate.
The second bill, AB 1575, would:
- Allow current operators and new businesses to organize as for-profit entities
- Authorize research on medical cannabis and new product development
- Set standards for delivery services
- Create a banking advisory group
- Regulate advertising by medical cannabis businesses
The second bill was authored by the same bipartisan group of lawmakers who wrote California’s landmark Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act last fall.
