A new post has been created to oversee medical marijuana in California. According to the Sacramento Bee, Gov. Jerry Brown announced Thursday that the current chief deputy director of the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, Lori Ajax, will take on this roll.

Ajax will manage the Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation in the Department of Consumer Affairs. Last year new legislation created this bureau to manage rules and regulations in the currently not so strict medical marijuana industry.


The bureau will also oversee licensing processes for cardholders, caretakers and dispensaries.

Hezekiah Allen, the executive director of the California Growers Association, publicized his support in a statement, claiming that he is happy to see California take this step towards marijuana management.

“Our members want to see a functioning bureau as soon as possible,” Allen said. “We are encouraged by Lori’s experience with state bureaucracy and familiarity with rural counties.”

The state Senate must give their approval before Ajax can officially be hired and offered an annual salary of $150,636. To read more about the new position, check out the full article.
