Data Analytics Driving Efficient and Effective Commercial Cannabis Oversight for Local Government

Commercial cannabis presents unique challenges and opportunities for local governments. Public safety, economic development, jobs, and public revenue all come to mind when the question of licensing commercial cannabis is raised.  The California Cannabis Authority ("CCA") was created by California counties to assist local governments in addressing this myriad of issues by making it possible for local governments to efficiently and effectively deploy resources for commercial cannabis oversight and taxation.

CCA is a Joint Powers Authority whose primary mission is to provide its members access to a sophisticated data analytics platform that delivers current, actionable intelligence and reports on commercial cannabis activity in their jurisdictions, giving regulators the power to make decisions quickly, efficiently, and founded on facts.   CCA is also a community of local governments working cooperatively to more efficiently and effectively regulate and tax commercial cannabis in their jurisdictions.
