Governor Newsom signs Cannabis Trailer Bill, creating the Department of Cannabis Control.

by Marijuana Staff

The Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) was established yesterday, following the signing of Assembly Bill (AB) 141.

DCC consolidates the three state cannabis programs – the Bureau of Cannabis Control, CDFA’s CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Division, and CDPH’s Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch – into a single, new state department.

Governor Newsom has appointed Nicole Elliott to lead DCC as its first Director.

While a global pandemic delayed the implementation of DCC, the approval of AB 141 reflects a persistent commitment to move toward a unified approach to regulating cannabis in California.
