With the passage of Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), California’s medical cannabis industry is now moving into a state licensing program. Voters will also be deciding on yet another major regulatory bill, Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) in November. Both laws include robust product safety protocols as well as a new licensing program.
Patient Focused Certification, a project of Americans for Safe Access is hosting an educational tour for the California medical cannabis industry to help demystify the regulations that will come from Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation (BMMR) and give practical advice for business to meet and exceed these requirements.
Our mission is to help companies surpass regulatory compliance. PFC staff have been working with governments for over 14 years to develop laws and regulations for the the medical cannabis industry. As well as with the American Herbal Products Association and the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia to create industry standards. Which have now been adopted in 16 states.
Whether you are currently a part of the medical cannabis industry or hoping to apply for a medical cannabis license this event is for you! Attendees will learn the general regulatory requirements for manufacturing, cultivation, dispensing, and laboratory operations as well as operating procedures, policies, and training recommended for each operation. PFC staff will demystify regulatory inspection, help you prepare your business and provide practical steps to reduce company liability with the industry's industry best practices.
