While the recreational cannabis market continues to pick up steam, lawmakers in Sacramento continue to work out the kinks in the system. Several marijuana-related measures are moving forward.
Lawmakers say the goal is to limit black market activities.
Here’s where some of those proposals stand:
Temporary event licenses >> Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) proposed AB 2020, which would allow consumption and sales of cannabis at certain special events.
In Humboldt County, this would allow cannabis farmers markets or cannabis festivals to take place. Restrictions on the types of special events have curtailed both activities. Organizers of Cannifest 2018 put the event on hold earlier this year because of a “lack of policies” being in place.
