SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) — As recreational marijuana sales are about to become legal, state officials took new steps to educate anyone interested in getting into the green business.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture held a cultivation and licensing workshop in Santa Ana Tuesday.
“There are a lot of checks and balances to make sure that one, public safety is taken care of, environmental health is preserved,” said Rebecca Foree, with the food and agriculture department.
Part of the process is a track and trace system, which requires growers to track the cannabis from seed to sale. The other requirement is approval from your city, which may be tough because some local governments are still sorting out how to deal with the business.
