NEWS & MENTIONS
"A longtime staffer at the California Legislature, Tsou helped write the book on medical marijuana industry regulations for
the largest cannabis market in the world. The Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MCRSA), which Tsou helped compose and which California lawmakers approved in September 2015, establishes a regulatory system for the state’s MMJ industry and is slated to go into effect in 2018. "
"Average time, what I learned when I was there for passing a simple regulation is about 18 months," Tsou said. "And this is like a huge complex ... ball of regulations with lots of different agencies ... moving at the same time."
