SB-94, the Cannabis Trailer Bill attached to the Budget passed the Senate with a Super-Majority Vote on June 15, 2017. The Trailer Bill merges the “The Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act” (MCRSA) and “The Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act” (AUMA) into one set of comprehensive regulations known as the:
MEDICINAL AND ADULT-USE CANNABIS REGULATION AND SAFETY ACT (MAUCRSA).
The purpose and intent of the Trailer Bill is to establish a comprehensive system to control and regulate the cultivation, distribution, transport, storage, manufacturing, processing and sale of both Medicinal cannabis and Medicinal cannabis products for patients with a valid physicians recommendation and Adult-use Cannabis and Adult-use Cannabis products for adults 21 years of age and over.
