California has pulled the licenses of around 400 legal marijuana related businesses after those companies failed to complete some mandatory training. According to a publication in Colorado that covers the cannabis business, that move could affect around 5 percent of California’s legal marijuana trade.. It means those retailers distributors and microbusiness will have to close down until they meet the requirements. The State Bureau of Cannabis Control says the training involved the state’s online track and trace system that helps them monitor the cannabis supply chain Officials say they expect those businesses to quickly finish the training so they can log into the tracking system and resume sales. Industry groups are worried that the closures could cause customers to turn to the black market, at least temporarily. There is no word on just WHAT business have been affected.
