Marijuana on clearance as dispensaries sell off inventory before new rules take effect

It’s a blowout weekend for cannabis products in Sacramento and across California.

Six months after marijuana was legalized, new safety and regulation laws take effect Sunday, and some Sacramento dispensaries are rushing to clear inventory that will no longer be salable come Sunday, July 1.

The deadline marks the end of a six-month transition window before new labeling, packaging and product testing requirements take hold.

Starting Sunday, products must pass additional checks for pesticides, chemicals and foreign material, according to the state Bureau of Cannabis Control. Dispensaries are required to destroy any marijuana goods out of compliance starting Sunday.
