Q. have lease agreement for weed cultivation license. Bureau of canna control said subletting is illegal Is contract void?
A: I agree with the advice already given about the importance of sitting down with a lawyer to review your agreement. The only additional point I would make is that current regulations governing licensed cannabis operations prohibit subletting. (Cal. Code Regs. Title 4, Section 15000.4; effective 9/27/2021).
