The CREAMM Act is the law that authorizes the CRC to expand and further develop the current Medicinal Cannabis Program, as well as develop, regulate, and enforce the rules and activities associated with recreational cannabis for adults 21 years or older. The Act also addresses other important issues related to cannabis:
- The Act requires the State courts and law enforcement to expunge people’s records for certain prior marijuana-related offenses;
- The Act directs the State Legislature to reinvest revenue from cannabis sales to initiatives such as financial support for individuals in Impact Zones; and
- The Act requires the Cannabis Regulatory Commission to adopt minimum standards to protect the health of medicinal patients and recreational consumers.
