More Cannabis workshops in May and June 2019

How to run a permitted indoor cannabis growing operation workshops in May and June 2019.

The legalization of marijuana in California brought users not only the recreational use of pot but also the right to grow legally a limited number of marijuana plants for their own use. Just how many and exactly how is the subject of cannabis workshops held all over the state.

Eager investors are expecting a fast growth of marijuana-related businesses with corresponding investment opportunities.

Where there is an opportunity to make a fast buck, abuse of the system is hardly ever far behind. In our case, users and investors are manipulating the system of growing ‘free’ marijuana plants at home and on public land trying to earn some fast and easy money.

The California Department of Fish and Game, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) are trying to prevent the worst excesses and to limit the damage done to the environment by eager pot entrepreneurs.

As a first step in the process, the three agencies are holding four additional cannabis permitting workshops in May and June 2019.

Here is the schedule for the cannabis workshops:

The permitting workshops are designed to help marijuana growers to navigate through the state licensing process and to handle local permitting requirements. Among the topics discussed in these cannabis workshops are an overview of the licensing program, the requirements for a cannabis cultivating license, Lake and Streambed alterations that avoid or limit strictly environmental impacts.

Interested parties can use computers during the workshops to apply for water permits on the spot. Representatives of CAL FIRE, the Department of Pesticide Regulation, the Franchise Tax Board and city and county representatives will be available to answer questions and guide aspiring growers through the permitting process.

The workshops are free and designed for new and already operating cannabis cultivators and, of course, for those interested in exploring the new opportunity. Attending potential growers will be given enough time to discuss individual projects after the formal presentations.

State and local officials encourage existing and potential cannabis cultivators to acquire the necessary state and local permits and to follow acceptable practices to avoid legal difficulties and enforcement actions later on.
