What is new for California in 2020?
2020 is going to be a turning point for Marijuana supporters. Especially with the passing of The Dennis Peron and Brownie Mary Compassionate Care Act. If this bill passes, then cannabis would also be accessible to patients who have a hard time affording it. The affordability will be increased with the exclusion of the cultivation tax.
Furthermore, the state and governor passed Assembly Bill 37. It will help to bring Tax equity to the cannabis business, just like any other Californian business.
