Becoming A Caregiver Producer or Provider in California
A primary caregiver must be at least 18 years old and should consistently assume responsibility for the housing, health, or safety of a patient. They can be the primary caregiver of more than one patient only if the patients live in the same city or county as the primary caregiver. IDs are not required in CA but are available at CA Department of Public Health.
The Medical Marijuana Program Act grants implied legal protection to the state's medicinal marijuana dispensaries. The AG upheld these legal protections. The CA Supreme Court has ruled that cities and counties have the right to ban dispensaries, which has created a patchwork of regulations around the state.
