California Cannabis Control - Presented by Infocast

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

California’s Municipal Officials & Law Enforcement Officers Have Questions About Regulating & Enforcing Cannabis. We Have Answers.

Municipalities allowing licensed cannabis in their jurisdiction offers California communities many benefits: additional tax revenue, increased product safety, and a successful shift away from the illicit market into a safer, more transparent and controlled environment.

However, the post-Covid era will confront many California communities with challenges in regulating cannabis. Only a quarter of cannabis is moving through fully licensed channels, over 80% of licenses granted are still provisional, and local agencies continue the hard work of developing, implementing, and enforcing cannabis regulations with limited staff and resources. Federal legalization, which could impact local regulation, remains a question as the House recently passed a bill to federally decriminalize cannabis.

Infocast’s fourth annual California Cannabis Control Summit – held live and in person – empowers local government officials and law enforcement agencies to provide an effective and safe regulatory framework for this growing industry. Attend to gain the resources and knowledge necessary to operate from a policy perspective, including best practices and lessons learned from law enforcement strategies and tactics, understanding tax frameworks, an update on state and federal laws, and feedback from communities that have developed cannabis fire, building, zoning and land-use policies. We hope to continue the success of the previous meetings in creating a forum where municipal representatives can learn from each other about how to confront the challenges and seize the opportunities of regulating licensed cannabis.
