Public Meetings across California for Growers: Licensing, Seed-to-Sale Tracking, Environmental Impact Report
Eight Public Meetings Just Announced by the CA Department of Food and Agriculture & the Medical Cannabis Cultivation Program: Grower Participation Needed.
Meetings in September to discuss Cultivation Licensing, Seed-to-Sale Tracking, Environmental Impact Report.
The CA Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) is developing regulations to establish cannabis cultivation licensing and a track and trace system, collectively referred to as the Medical Cannabis Cultivation Program (MCCP). The overall purpose of CDFA’s licensing program is to ensure medical cannabis cultivation is performed in a manner that protects the environment, cannabis cultivation workers, and the general public from the individual and cumulative effects of these operations, and fully complies with all applicable laws. An additional MCCP purpose is to establish a track and trace program to ensure the movement of medical cannabis items are tracked throughout the production chain. Public participation is a critical part of the regulation development and environmental review process. CDFA welcomes public participation throughout the planning and environmental review process of cultivation licensing in CA.
Eight Public Meetings / Scoping Workshops will be held to provide the public and regulatory agencies an opportunity to ask questions and submit comments. For complete details, please download the MCCP brochure.
