A vibrant legal cannabis market is better for all Californians. The Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) supports integrity in the cannabis market through:
- Routine inspections
DCC works with licensees to resolve compliance challenges. Routine inspections are an opportunity to assess licensee compliance with state law.
When violations are found, DCC staff will show you the issue and instruct you to fix it. They may also issue a Notice to Comply, which identifies violations and gives a deadline for correcting them.
How state law is enforced
Serious violations or recurring issues are addressed using:
- Citations that may include:
- Fines – up to $5,000 per violation (licensees) or $30,000 per violation (unlicensed persons)
- Order of abatement
- Embargo – prevents cannabis and cannabis product from being moved
- License suspension
- License revocation
- Fines based on disciplinary guidelines
Learn more about compliance and enforcement actions in chapter 12 of the DCC regulations.
