SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Yesterday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Assembly Bill 5 (AB 5), a sweeping piece of legislation that rewrites the state’s employment law to address the status of independent contractors, including dancers at strip clubs.

Top Trending Cannabis Strains for College-Aged Consumers

In some places, the legal age to consume cannabis is 18 with a medical card; some places it’s 21 with valid ID.

BY ERIKA CHAN

“Part of our mission is to make sure the majority of clip-sale profits go into the hands of the people making the content.” — John Ruskin

Similarly, being a master clips maker also requires a broad — but considerably different — skill set, one that takes time and effort to cultivate. For cam models looking to incorporate clips into their content repertoires, the idea of taking on a whole new type of content producing may seem daunting — but it doesn’t have to be.
