The ballot initiative process gives California citizens a way to propose and enact by direct vote of the people, laws and constitutional amendments without the support of the Governor or Legislature.  However, direct democracy by citizens through the initiative process can lead to the enactment of rights and privileges that get out ahead of the executive, legislative and judicial branches ability to develop and implement rules and regulations for how newly created rights are exercised.  On November 8, 2016 the People of California exercised their will through the initiative process and as of January 1, 2018 the people of California made the adult use of cannabis legal.  The economic impact from retail sales to taxation revenues of creating a cannabis industry is projected to be in the billions of dollars.  As the first quarter of 2018 nears an end some trends in the legalization of cannabis in California are developing:  Regulation delegated to local agencies and authorities makes uniformity in controlling the cannabis industry difficult to predict.  Financial regulations and banking remains an open question.  Land Use and Zoning rules are being challenged to accommodate expected production demands.  It is becoming clear that every aspect of the legal relationship between individual and property rights may, in some manner be affected by the legalization of cannabis in California.  

Please join us for our Webinar as we review and focus on one area of use, regulation and management of real property that presents a risk of conflict between the individual and the community of which the individual is a part.

  • Are all parts of an individual’s residence private
  • Restricting use of an owner’s property
  • What can or cannot be done in view from a public place
  • What happens if an adult exercising a right to use cannabis interferes with another’s use or enjoyment of property
  • Heightened risk and security concerns for the community
  • Privacy restrictions balancing the needs of a community against an individual’s legal use of cannabis

The Webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 3:00 p.m.

As always, there is no charge for our Webinar. We hope to see you there!
