Cannabis Growers in California Face Tough Choices

512

California has a cannabis problem, in that the state is behind—waaaaay behind—in getting cannabis growers the licenses they need to grow legally. As Marijuana Business Daily explains, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) issues these grower permits. As of April 16, the CDFA had issued 62 annual permits, and 564 temporary grow permits known as provisional licenses. However, by that same date, approximately 3,000 provisional licenses had expired, and by the end of the month, it’s estimated that a total of 6,000 licenses will have expired.
This is coming to a head with outdoor planting season having started, and many growers have planted in the fervent hope that a legislative fix would provide relief. That fix is Senate Bill 67, written to extend temporary business licenses through 2019. It has passed the California Senate, and is presently in the assembly, and would need to clear several hurdles before making it to the governor’s desk.
