CA DOI May Issue Licenses to Agents with Marijuana Convictions
January 28, 2020

California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara announced that the Department of Insurance will use its discretion in deciding whether to issue licenses to those with cannabis-related convictions in support of Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, approved by voters in 2016. This action will clear obstacles to becoming an agent, broker, or other licensee for those whose past convictions are eligible to be dismissed or reduced under the current law. “When voters approved Proposition 64, they wanted to clear obstacles for those with prior convictions, and that is what my Department is doing,” Lara said.
