Watch for current and prospective California cannabis business operators. The Department of Cannabis Control (“DCC”) just published a set of proposed Emergency Regulations!
On September 8, 2021, the DCC announced that it is conducting an emergency rulemaking action and that it will file proposed Emergency Regulations with the Office of Administrative Law on or about September 16, 2021. The publication of the proposed Emergency Regulations comes on the heels of (1) the consolidation of the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch, and CalCannabis into one centralized Department of Cannabis Control and (2) changes to the Business and Professions Code that went into effect this past summer.
Along with the proposed Emergency Regulations, the DCC published copies of proposed amended Disciplinary Guidelines and updated Department forms. The DCC’s Finding of Emergency and Notice of Proposed Emergency Regulations, the proposed Emergency Regulations themselves, and the other proposed amended documents can be located on the DCC’s Rulemaking Webpage.
