This past weekend new regulation were set in place for Californias medical and recreational cannabis dispensaries to ensure quality and safety for consumers. All cannabinoid derived products and dried herbs that were not considered compliant were ordered to either be sold or destroyed by the July 1, 2018 deadline.

New regulations set up in the sunshine state requires any product sold within a dispensary to be rigorously tested for pesticides, herbicides, toxins, heavy metals, mold, and any other contaminates that might be harmful for consumers. Retailers and manufactures must also adhere to new child proof packaging restrictions to avoid the accidental use from children underage. The new regulations are seeking to help legitimize the now legal recreational industry.

The United Cannabis Business Association petitioned against the new regulations stating that the new rules set in place would force businesses involved in the sector to destroy tens of millions of dollars worth of inventory. They also stated that laboratory testing facilities are backed up with orders and some of which have refused new customers. Despite this the regulations are being enforced anyways.

On June 30, 2018 dozens of dispensaries conducted fire sales in an attempt to rid themselves of product that would be useless the next day. It has been estimated that dispensaries had to get rid of over 4,500 pounds of cannabis due to the new regulations.
