Starting January 1st, 2018, the largest legal marijuana market (AKA California) will go “recreational.”  In other words, you will be able to walk into a licensed dispensary with just an I.D. vs. needing a “recommendation” from a physician.  With these forthcoming changes, there are a grip of new rules, or “emergency regulations,” rolling out — courtesy of three separate state agencies: the Department of Health, Department of Food and Agriculture, and the Bureau of Cannabis Control.

While some in the cannabis industry are concerned that these new rulings (in addition to high taxes) could keep the black market thriving, California is estimated to grab $1 billion in taxes next year.
