California Cannabis Regulators Issue Temporary Licenses

The California Bureau of Cannabis Control’s Cannabis Licensing, Enforcement and Reporting Project has issued more than 50 temporary industry licenses to businesses with valid permits or authorization from their local jurisdictions.

According to a press release from the agency, more than 1,900 users have registered with the Bureau’s online system as of Dec. 14 and more than 200 business applications have been submitted to the agency.

“Last week, we officially launched our online licensing system, and today we’re pleased to issue the first group of temporary licenses to cannabis businesses that fall under the Bureau’s jurisdiction. We plan to issue many more before January 1.” – Bureau of Cannabis Control Chief Lori Ajax

The full list is available – and searchable – on the Bureau of Cannabis Control website. Current temporary licenses include more than 20 medical cannabis cultivation, retailers and distributors; four testing laboratories; and nearly 20 adult use cultivation, retailer, and distributor licenses.

All of the licenses take effect on Jan. 1 and are valid for 120 days, after which a permanent license must be obtained. The agency launched its online application system earlier this month, and the Secretary of State’s office rolled out its portal for would-be canna-business owners last week.
