 Medical Marijuana Regulation & Safety Act (MMRSA)


In 1996, the electorate enacted Proposition 215, or The Compassionate Use Act, which allowed patients and primary caregivers to obtain and use medical marijuana, as recommended by a physician.


In 2015, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the California Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act.  The MMRSA is a package of three separate bills (Assembly Bills 243 and 266 and Senate Bill 643) that established a comprehensive regulatory framework for the cultivation, production, transportation, testing, sale and taxation of medical marijuana. Among its provisions, the act sets a deadline of March 1, 2016 for local jurisdictions to have land use regulations or ordinances regulating or prohibiting the cultivation of marijuana – or choose not to administer a conditional permit program pursuant to AB 243 – or the state “shall be the sole licensing authority for medical marijuana cultivation applicants.” However, that date has been recalled.

It is important to understand that the MMRSA Regulations are based upon a federal memo detailing what would be necessary for the federal government to change their stance on marijuana. Most important was that the industry must be regulated and tracked from the growing of the plant, through distribution, testing, manufacturing, transporting and dispensing. Additionally, it must be kept away from children, unless recommended by a doctor for medical purposes, which means dispensaries cannot sell nor can manufacturers label items marketed to children. Finally, it needs to be made FOR PROFIT and allow for taxes to replace the funds that will be lost from the decrease of arrests and prosecutions of marijuana crimes. This means that, under MMRSA, penalties will come in the form of monies instead of prison.
