California Bureau of Hashish Management Gives Recommendation on Billboard Promoting on Interstate and State Highways – MJNews Community
CALIFORNIA: On January 11, 2021, the San Luis Obispo County Supreme Court issued a formal judgment in the case of Farmer v Bureau of Cannabis Control (Bureau) and Lori Ajax, ruling Section 5040 (b) (3) of the Bureau’s regulations is invalid.
This means that Section 5040 (b) (3), which only prohibited billboard advertising within a 15 mile radius of the California border on a freeway or state road that crosses the California border, is no longer in effect. That’s why, A licensee may not place advertising or marketing on a billboard or similar promotional material on a freeway or state road crossing the California border as specified in Section 26152 (d) of the Business and Professions Code.
In order to comply with laws and regulations, licensees may not post any new advertisement or marketing on a freeway or state highway that crosses the California border. Licensees should also begin removing recent advertising and marketing that meet these criteria.
Licensees who have questions about compliance with the court order can send them to [email protected]
