What is Prop 65 and how does it impact cannabis businesses?
The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act — aka Proposition 65 or “Prop 65” — was approved by California voters (63% in favor) in 1986. It requires businesses to disclose exposures to various naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
