They are the main ingredient in essential oils, and are the fragrant compounds responsible for plants' distinctive scents.

California might lower its marijuana tax, here's why

California's legalization didn't turn out to the economic boom legislators anticipated. Incredibly high tax rates on the state and local levels have kept many consumers satisfied with the black market. In some California cities, the aggregate tax can reach 45%. Meaning your $100 cannabis purchase will cost you $145 at the register.

Assembly Bill 286, known as the Temporary Cannabis Tax Reduction bill, would slash state excise taxes for legal marijuana retailers to 11 percent.

Oceanside, California moves forward in licensing medical marijuana delivery services. This legislative move, championed by Chuck Lowery, Deputy Mayor, City of Oceanside, ends the era of San Diego County being known as a "Cannabis access desert." Locally, the cities of Vista and Chula Vista have retail cannabis licensing and taxation initiatives on the midterm ballot. If successful, San Diego County, California could see upwards of a dozen more licensed delivery retailers across the county by early 2019. San Diego Cannabis Delivery Alliance President, Sam Humeid feels the future is bright for expanded access to cannabis goods by delivery throughout greater San Diego, California. #Potlitics
