The Trailer Bill Passed!

Dear members of our community,

Here is an important message from our friends at the California Growers Association regarding the regulations that will rule over all cannabis related activity. Please take a moment to read and educate yourself on what will be the future of cannabis in California:

Earlier this afternoon the State Senate passed SB 94, the cannabis budget trailer bill, with a vote of 31 to 7. This vote came a short while after the State Assembly passed the bill with a vote of 66 to 3. With these two votes, the trailer bill is out of the state legislature and is fast-tracked to become state law.

Now that the bill is passed, the Medical and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) will govern California cannabis. This law will be the foundation of regulated cannabis activity in the state. This bill is the culmination of nearly three years of focused work–work that brought together stakeholders representing a broad spectrum of perspectives and required the investment of tens of thousands of hours.

I know I said it the other day when I emailed you, but it bears repeating: your continued support is what sustains our success. Thank you.

To help make sense of the MAUCRSA we are working with our local partners in Nevada County, Sonoma,Sierra County, Humboldt, Tuolumne, Mendocino, Calaveras, the SF – Oakland Bay Area and Los Angeles to bring you a series of no cost informational workshops.

Want us to come visit your community? Email and we will work with you to get something on the calendar.

Also, I am pleased to confirm two important panels for our Summer Policy Summit on July 10. From 1:30 to 2:30 PM we will be joined by representatives from the Employment Development Department to discuss payroll taxes and reporting. From 3 to 4 PM we will be joined by representatives from the state water board who will discuss the progress that has been made on the statewide water quality order.

The event is free for members. You can join here if you would like to attend

In addition, the board meeting will feature a report on the budget process, an update about this years legislation and an update on the regulatory process, and a presentation on the cultural significance of the word “marijuana.” This conversation has become a focal point of the dialog at times and board member Miguel Gavilan Molina and others will offer a very valuable perspective. We will also host round-table discussions in partnership with the Cannabis Delivery Alliance and the Cannabis Distributors Association.

With so many important events coming up in July and August, now is a great time to become an event sponsor.

A $2500 “single event sponsorship” made before July 1st will get your farm, brand or company exposure in printed and digital materials at a half a dozen (likely more!) events throughout the state. There really isn’t a better value if you want to reach growers, policy makers and community leaders. You can contribute here if you are ready to make moves–or email if you would like more information.

I am looking forward to seeing you soon! Thanks again–without your support none of the success would be possible.

With love and gratitude,

Hezekiah D. Allen
