How we got here

Posted October 02, 2018 07:52:56 In October 2018, the California Supreme Court ruled that the state’s marijuana industry can now begin to sell recreational pot, as long as there are no restrictions on what kinds of pot can be sold. 

This ruling is a major victory for California’s legalization movement and means that marijuana businesses in the state can sell their products legally. 

The court also recognized that it is still illegal under federal law to sell marijuana in public, which means that the industry cannot operate without being subject to a federal prohibition. 

In a statement, the attorney general of California, Xavier Becerra, called the ruling “a significant victory for the California marijuana industry and for the nation as a whole.”

“The Supreme Court’s decision is a significant victory in ensuring that the California Marijuana Industry, like other businesses, will be allowed to sell their product without having to comply with federal law,” Becerrra said in a statement.

“It is a clear signal that the states with the most comprehensive and comprehensive cannabis policies can continue to grow and thrive while maintaining the safety and health of our communities.”

The ruling came on the heels of another Supreme Court decision last week that struck down the federal ban on the production, distribution, and possession of marijuana in states with legalized recreational marijuana. 

California is one of the 13 states that have legalized recreational cannabis.
