The First Step is Being Informed

On our website you can find out all about your rights by reading our translations of the California Recreational Laws.

Seriously.  We actually had a real California attorney read the laws and explain what they mean for you.  In plain English!  We did that so you could know your recreational rights to help encourage a compliant cannabis market!  We even designed our Saturday Smoke Sessions to make you think about how the latest marijuana trends could impact the recreational laws or even your favorite Canna-Business.  And just in case you can’t find the answer to your question, just ask us!
