Medical Marijuana Regulations Taking Shape As State Gets Involved

CITRUS HEIGHTS (CBS13) – A think session with marijuana industry leaders, the public, and state agencies was held in Citrus Heights on Tuesday.

It’s the second of eight public meetings held across the state as regulations on medical cannabis take shape.

She’s the director of Therapeutic Alternative and she participated in Tuesday’s discussions. The marijuana industry was self-regulated and followed local rules for two decades. Now the state is getting involved.
