Course Description

On November 9, 2016, California voters passed Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act that made substantial changes in cannabis law. With new regulations and licensing of cannabis cultivators and dealers taking effect on January 1, 2018, California law enforcement agencies need to be aware of the changes and its effect on environmental crimes associated with cannabis cultivation. This two day symposium will provide the latest information on law and regulation changes, the environmental impact of cannabis cultivation, and investigation and enforcement strategies to target those who violate the law.

Attendance is restricted to law enforcement personnel or from a recognized EPA agency working in collaboration with law enforcement.
