The Act is not intended to infringe upon the protections granted under the Compassionate Use Act of 1996. However, the Act is designed to operate in parallel with the California Legislature’s recent changes to the production, sale, and control of medical cannabis. The Commission will be responsible for establishing regulations so that cannabis and cannabis products from the legislatively approved medical cannabis regime can move seamlessly into the adult use system. This includes the recognition of medical licenses for commercial purposes and maintaining the ability to track and trace commercial cannabis. The Act is also sensitive to protecting the rights of qualified patients and primary caregivers.
