California Cannabis Regulations

Proposed Medical Cannabis Regulations

 

Each set of Proposed Regulations is accompanied by an Initial Statement of Reasons (ISOR).  An ISOR is a document that explains the reasons why the agency is proposing the draft regulations. The ISOR also identifies the factual material upon which the agency relied in proposing the regulations.  Since each ISOR helps explain the corresponding proposed regulations, they have been combined below for your convenience.  (Search both regs and ISOR in one convenient PDF file.)
