Cali. Clears Obstacles for Potential Licensees with Cannabis Convictions
Commissioner Lara clears career obstacles for licensing individuals with cannabis-related convictions following Proposition 64.
California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara has announced that the Department of Insurance will use its discretion in deciding whether to issue licenses to individuals that have cannabis-related convictions. The announcement has been made in support of Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, which was approved by California voters in 2016. The action will clear obstacles to becoming an agent, broker, or other licensee for individuals whose past convictions are eligible to be dismissed or reduced under current California law.
