Medical Cannabis Resources
The California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) is developing regulations to establish medical cannabis cultivation licensing and a track and trace system, collectively referred to as the Medical Cannabis Cultivation Program (MCCP). Please note, CDFA is in the early stages of developing the regulations that will define the medical cannabis cultivation licensing process. CDFA is not currently issuing licenses. CDFA anticipates licenses will begin being issued January 1, 2018.
Questions regarding issuing Operator ID Numbers (OINs)to report pesticide use should be referred to Debbie Trupe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
