California is set to legalize recreational marijuana this January. Politicians and regulators are scrambling to put together the legal framework for the state's marijuana market. These "emergency regulations" will have lasting impacts on California's cannabusinesses.
Greg Zeman, Associate Editor at Cannabis Now, explains what the regulations are, and how they'll impact Californians. Many of the regulations, he says, will help to make sure that the products sold in stores are made with the highest of standards. All products will have to go through rigorous testing before going to market.
The regulations do place some limitations on the market, however. Individuals will only be able to buy 28.5 grams of non-concentrated cannabis at a single store in a single day. Stores will also only be able to operate between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
