Report to the State of California

Just spent the afternoon in Sacramento at the Capitol, reporting on our research at the Cannabis Research Center. We met with folks from Fish & Wildlife, the Water Board, state parks, California Highway Patrol, the National Guard, the Bureau of Cnnabis Control, Food & Agriculture, Pesticides, CalCannabis, and the Cannabis Enforcement Unit, among others. Van Butsic gave a presentation on what kinds of farms and farmers are coming into compliance, and who is not. Ted Grantham spoke about his research on cannabis and water use. Hekia Bodwitch spoke about the statewide cultivator survey we conducted this summer. And I presented on the work I’ve been doing over the last decade. Great day, over all. Happy to keep contributing to understanding of this complex issue.
