On January 16, 2019, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) approved the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s cannabis cultivation regulations and the regulations went into effect immediately. The previous emergency regulations were adopted by the California Department of Food and Agriculture in December 2017 and readopted in June 2018, and were originally issued through the emergency rulemaking process to meet the legislative mandate to open California’s regulated cannabis market on January 1, 2018. The emergency regulations are no longer in effect, now that the new regulations have been approved by OAL.
