California's Pot Czar Discusses Marijuana Regulations
California's first-ever cannabis czar has nearly a year to come up with a plan to regulate the marijuana industry in the state. Lori Ajax is the chief of California's Bureau of Marijuana Control, formerly the Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation. The agency is charged with licensing cannabis farmers, product manufacturers, testing labs, distributors and retailers. Those regulations need to be in place by Jan. 1, 2018.
