A new bill OK’d by the California Senate would enable state officials to extend nearly 7,000 temporary cannabis growing licenses through mid-September. The temporary licenses, which the state stopped issuing on Dec. 31, will all expire by July, at which point there would be no authorized cannabis market “and a crisis will take hold.”

The bill, SB 67, is intended to prevent “good actors” from reverting to the underground industry that existed before voters made recreational marijuana legal in 2016.
