After consultations with Gov. Brown the state legislature has passed a package of bills designed to bring order to the billion-dollar medical pot industry.
After nearly 20 years of wrangling over what is and is not legal under California’s 1996 Proposition 215 medical marijuana law the state legislature has passed a set of bills designed to bring order to the chaos.
Fresh from working with the office of Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on acceptable language the Assembly and the Senate Friday passed Assembly Bill 243, Assembly Bill 266, and Senate Bill 643 just hours before the session ended.
If as expected Gov. Brown signs the bills into law the medical marijuana status quo – rife with ambiguities contradictions and grey areas – will be transformed into a robust strictly regulated medical marijuana industry.
