“Hello CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Stakeholders:

The public comment period for the proposed medical cannabis cultivation

participation.

Today we are excited to announce the release of the CalCannabis Cultivation
Licensing *Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for public
review and comment.* This environmental report can be viewed here.

The Draft PEIR provides information about the potential environmental
effects associated with the adoption and implementation of statewide
cannabis cultivation regulations. Additional information on the PEIR can be
found by reading this Frequently Asked Questions handout on the
environmental review process.

The release of the Draft PEIR triggers a *45-day public review and comment

input on the environmental analyses, mitigation measures, and alternatives
associated with statewide cannabis cultivation. Public and agency comments
