California licensing logjam creates supply chain dilemma
Lengthy wait times for annual business licenses, coupled with the legal inability of California regulators to further extend temporary permits, have created a situation where many businesses may be forced to shut down temporarily.
That leaves many in the state’s supply chain wondering how this could impact their businesses in coming months.
MJBizDaily takeaway: The ripple effects of the pending supply-chain crisis have already begun making many in the industry nervous. Many of those facing a temporary shutdown are small farmers who may not have the money to abide by the law if it means a month or more of inactivity.
A lengthy shutdown also could put many seriously behind schedule for this year’s growing season. So, the true impact of this crisis may take months to manifest.
