CALIFORNIA - Some cannabis businesses throughout the state are blaming slumping sales on new regulations. 

Owners of some of these cannabis businesses cite factors such as high taxes, complex laws and decisions by some cities to ban cannabis stores. 

The store 530 Cannabis in Shasta County spoke with Action News Now about the changes they would like to see in the new year. 

"I would hope that California would model after the other states that have already recreationalized marijuana and they've seen great growth in that," said Gyasi Davis, assistant manager of 530 Cannabis. "But, you know, it's all a learning curve and it will take time." 

Davis and other employees say that sales have not fallen short, at least in Shasta County.
