California Department of Cannabis Control Tours Nevada County

Good to Grow, Nevada County Cannabis Compliance, group shot with members of cannabis organizations.

On Friday, September 22, various members of the Nevada County Cannabis Alliance and the Cannabis Compliance Division Program Manager, Jeff Merriman accompanied the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC)  on a cannabis-specific tour of local businesses throughout Nevada County. Cannabis Compliance Division works in partnership with the community to permit and maintain a safe, legal, environmentally responsible, and thriving cannabis industry.

The tour provided an opportunity to showcase the role Nevada County plays within the legal, permitted cannabis industry ranging from cultivation, testing, processing, and sales. There were multiple stops throughout the day including a visit to a fully permitted, outdoor cultivation farm with on-site processing followed by a visit to Nevada County’s local testing, manufacturing, distribution, and retail businesses.

The Department of Cannabis Control is a state agency that was created in 2021 after merging three separate programs (the Bureau of Cannabis Control, CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Division, and the Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch) into one. This agency licenses and regulates the growing, manufacturing, transportation, retail sales, and several other aspects related to cannabis businesses. For more information on the Department of Cannabis Control, please visit their website.
