The first state to legalize the use of marijuana in USA was California. Cannabis was accepted under the legal radar in California in 1996. A lot of changes have been made in the legal requirements regarding cannabis industry in the past, and a reasonable legal framework has been established to facilitate the businesses in this industry. Presently, only non-profit organizations are allowed to apply and conduct business in this industry by the California state Government. But there are chances that profit motive organizations will also be allowed to conduct operations in this industry due to the huge demand of cannabis in general public. To start either a non-profit business or a business solely for profit, California cannabis business permits are they key to open the doors of marijuana industry. However, the permits obtained for business are not convertible, which means that a non-profit business in this industry cannot be converted into a profit seeking business.
Alongwith the understanding of legal requirements, you have to obtain a local approval first if you are considering to enter this lucrative industry. If you fail to get a local approval, the state will reject your application and you will not be granted California cannabis business permits, which is why your local reputation is also an essential factor if you want to start a venture. The laws and requirements are also changing constantly and it’s the state who decides and selects the individuals who will operate in the marijuana industry.
