With the Golden State’s recreational cannabis market up and running, those with temporary California cannabis cultivation licenses can now apply for the coveted annual licenses.
While not all Golden State dispensaries had received their temporary licenses to start adult-use sales on New Year’s Day, the state’s legal commercial cannabis market still went live on Jan. 1, 2018, with California recreational cannabis sales commencing at approximately 100 retailers across the state.
Berkeley, Calif., Jan. 1, 2018 /Weed Wire/ – Berkeley Patients Group (BPG), the nation’s oldest, continuously operating dispensary in the country, as well as the first dispensary in the Bay Area – and fifth in the state – to receive a temporary retail permit from the California Bureau of Cannabis Control, will once again make history as it opens its doors to the adult-use market on New Year’s Day, marking a major milestone in California’s long, storied history of cannabis law reform.
California is just weeks away from officially kicking off recreational cannabis sales and the state finally started accepting license applications late last week.
