Cannabis testing laboratories.

Abstract

Existing law, the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) , which includes the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) , an initiative statute enacted by the voters as Proposition 64 at the November 8, 2016, statewide general election, provides for the licensure and regulation of commercial cannabis activity, including testing laboratories, by the Bureau of Cannabis Control and other licensing authorities. Existing law prohibits licensed testing laboratories from acquiring or receiving cannabis or cannabis products except from a licensee in accordance with MAUCRSA, except as provided. This bill would authorize a licensed testing laboratory to receive and test samples of cannabis or cannabis products from a state or local law enforcement, or a prosecuting or regulatory agency in order to test the cannabis or cannabis products. The bill would also clarify that testing conducted by a testing laboratory for state or local law enforcement, a prosecuting agency, or a regulatory agency, is not commercial cannabis activity and would prohibit that testing from being arranged or overseen by the bureau.
