The Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation (BMCR) today announced March 17 as the final filing date for those wishing to submit an application to serve on the Cannabis Advisory Committee.
The committee will advise BMCR and the other licensing authorities – the California Department of Food and Agriculture and the California Department of Public Health – on the development of cannabis regulations that protect public health and safety while ensuring a regulated market that helps reduce the illicit market for cannabis.
Reminder, committee members are selected by and serve at the pleasure of the Director of the Department of Consumer Affairs. The committee will consist of representatives from diverse backgrounds, including the cannabis industry, labor, state and local agencies, public health experts, representatives from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control with expertise in regulating intoxicating substances for adult use, individuals with expertise in the medicinal properties of cannabis, and representatives from communities disproportionately affected by past federal and state drug policy, among others.
Individuals interested in serving on the committee can access the application online at: http://www.bmcr.ca.gov/about_us/documents/commitee_application.pdf
