California Gov. Approves Cannabis Tax Overhauls

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill allowing cannabis businesses to take normal business tax deductions alongside several other pieces of cannabis legislation. The governor, however, opted to veto legislation allowing for cannabis use in hospitals.
