Summary: Current law, the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act, provides for the licensure of persons engaged in specified activities relating to medical marijuana and establishes other regulatory provisions. That act also requires each licensing authority to prepare and submit to the Legislature an annual report on the authority's activities and post the report on the authority's Internet Web site. This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to that provision.

The act authorizes a county to impose a tax on the privilege of cultivating, dispensing, producing, processing, preparing, storing, providing, donating, selling, or distributing medical cannabis or medical cannabis products by a licensee. This bill would eliminate the specification that the imposition of tax applies only to a licensee.
