Public Comments Re: Early Stage Cannabis Regs

Here are 4 documents that FCCC has submitted as Public Comments, before the passage of AUMA in November of 2016. These were all received in the first round of public comments, as California’s legislature and licensing agencies were in the early stage of drafting state regulations.

BMCR & OMCS Public Comments from Workshop Data

This document represents the dialogue we had with the Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation / Office of Medical Cannabis Safety.  This draft did not address the final four issues on the last page, because those issues were not yet receiving public comments at the time.

CDFA Correspondence #1 Complete Answers to Workshop Survey

This document represents the dialogue we had with the California Department Food and Agriculture.  The purpose of these early stage public comments was to educate our State Legislators in the course of answering the initial public questions posed by our State Licensing Agencies.

CDFA Correspondence #2 Determining Annual Production Requirements

This document represents our attempt to educate our state legislators and licensing agencies, early on, regarding the dangers of creating artificial limitations to cannabis production or dispensation. It highlights the advantages of applying Market Economics, and explains the simple mathematical formulas needed to successfully calculate California’s initial requirements for legal cannabis products, based solely on supply and demand. And it suggests the amounts of cannabis that California should be prepared to legally produce, and the numbers of state licenses required to realistically fulfill that goal. 

SWRCB Review of Public Workshop Data

This document represents the dialogue we had with the State Water Resources Control Board. You definitely want to check this one out, as it contains our own expert analysis of water usage per pound and price per pound valuations comparing cannabis to all of California’s major commercial crops. This document is the answer to the question of providing adequate water supplies to California’s cannabis crops.

Here’s My Marijuana Card, Officer
In the capital of legal pot, you don’t need much of an excuse

By Margot Hornblower/Arcata Monday, May 03, 1999

It is not that Mel Brown, police chief of this tie-dye-and-tofu town, set out to flout federal law. But here he is, a 53-year-old father of two who has never inhaled, issuing laminated and embossed get-out-of-jail-free cards for partakers of the infamous Humboldt bud, a potent local variety of marijuana. “You can photograph me,” he tells a reporter genially, “but not reclining on a bearskin rug and smoking a joint.”

Arcata (pop. 16,000) lies in the heart of the Emerald Triangle, the three lush California counties of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity, 275 miles north of San Francisco as the spotted…

Letter to Editor: Users not a minority
May 16, 2018, 10:16 am

I’m not sure whether cannabis users are a small minority at all.
