Notes From the Field
California Agriculture special issue on cannabis

V oter approval of Proposition 64, the 2016 ballot measure that altered California law to allow the recreational use of cannabis by adults,
presented policymakers with the challenge of regulating, licensing and taxing a large, complex and fast-changing recreational cannabis industry. The challenge was made more acute because scientific research on many aspects of cannabis in California had never been conducted at scale.
UC is now working to fill that research gap. At least nine UC research centers, most of them new, now focus entirely or in part on cannabis. In this special issue , California Agriculture presents research articles on cannabis production, the economics of California's cannabis industry, and the social and community impacts of cannabis.
