The Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation is now accepting applications for a marijuana advisory committee to help inform the agency as the state sets up rules governing the new industry.
Medical cannabis laws passed by the Legislature in 2015 and the recreational legalization measure voters approved in November established similar overarching regulatory frameworks related to cultivation, manufacturing, transportation, sales and other aspects of the marijuana market. State agencies are tasked with developing specific rules to best implement the new laws.
Meanwhile, lawmakers are crafting legislation to reconcile differences between the two laws on distribution, licensing and other key issues.
