Cannabis: temporary event cultivator retail license.


The Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) , an initiative measure approved as Proposition 64 at the November 8, 2016, statewide general election, authorizes a person who obtains a state license under AUMA to engage in commercial adult-use cannabis activity pursuant to that license and applicable local ordinances. The Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) , among other things, consolidates the licensure and regulation of commercial medicinal and adult-use cannabis activities and requires the Department of Cannabis Control to administer its provisions. Under MAUCRSA, the Department of Cannabis Control has sole authority to license and regulate commercial cannabis activity, which MAUCRSA defines to include, among other activities, the sale of cannabis and cannabis products. This bill would require the department to issue temporary event cultivator retail licenses that authorize the license holder to sell cannabis or cannabis products, containing cannabis cultivated by that licensee, at specified state temporary events licensed under the act. The bill would authorize a licensee who holds a valid state cultivation license and a valid license, permit, or other authorization for cannabis cultivation issued by a local jurisdiction, and who cultivates no more than one acre of cannabis, as provided, or is an equity applicant or licensee, as defined, to apply for a temporary event cultivator retail license. The bill would require a temporary event cultivator retail licensee to comply with all requirements imposed on cannabis retailers selling cannabis or cannabis products at a state temporary event, unless otherwise specified. The bill would specify that a temporary event cultivator retail license is valid only for the specific state temporary event for which it was issued, and would limit the number of temporary event cultivator retail licenses issued to each licensee to 8 per calendar year. AUMA authorizes the Legislature to amend its provisions with a 23 vote of both houses to further its purposes and intent. This bill would state that the bill furthers the purposes and intent of AUMA.
