A: You don't say who arrested you but under federal law, cannabis is still entirely illegal (apart from hemp). Under California cannabis law - MAUCRSA (Marijuana and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act) people can only work in the business under the state's licensing scheme, as an employee or owner of a state licensed business. ( Medical patients and personal use excluded). Possession for sale is a misdemeanor, unless minors are involved.
