Our clients have received a complaint and letter requesting video footage and SOPs, we wish to show you the contents to help you prepare for your own potential regulatory audit. Contact us at the end of this post with any questions we can answer on coronavirus / COVID-19 compliance preparedness as a cannabis business.

In 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom designated cannabis companies as “essential” businesses. This set an important precedent for other cannabis-legal states, as California’s retail licensees (and the supply chain that supports them) have been allowed to remain open during the statewide stay-at-home order. Although the number of reported COVID-19 cases statewide are in decline, it is critical that your cannabis business has the proper health and safety SOP’s in place.

Health and Safety protocols have never been more important. California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) requires licensees to comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Interim Guidance for Businesses to Plan and Respond to COVID-19 disease at all times. Additionally, we have seen a rise in complaints and requests from the BCC seeking information on cannabis business with requests of SOP’s and video showing protocols have been followed.
