California Medical Marijuana Regulation Bill Advancing in Assembly

May 29th

LA Dispensary

SACRAMENTO, CA —  A proposal to impose state control over California’s medical marijuana industry, which has been largely unregulated since Proposition 215 passed in 1996, has advanced to a third reading and possible vote in the California Assembly.

Assembly Bill 473, introduced by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), would create a  new agency within the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to regulate the growth, supply and sale of medical cannabis, replacing standards that now vary wildly from one city and county to another.

The bill has received favorable reports from the Committees on Public Safety, Health, and Appropriations, and a third reading has been ordered for the full Assembly to consider the bill.

California Senate Passes Medical Marijuana Dispensary Regulation Bill

May 21st

LA Dispensary

SACRAMENTO, CA — The California Senate voted 22-12 Monday to pass a medical marijuana dispensary regulation bill and send it to the Assembly for further consideration.

The bill, Senate Bill 439, would take the first steps to regulate the sale of medical marijuana state-wide since California voters approved Proposition 215 in 1996, legalizing medical marijuana in California.

The legislation would require that medical marijuana dispensaries are non-profit, although dispensary owners would be able to receive “reasonable compensation” and reimbursement for expenses for providing medical marijuana to patients.

The bill comes as a legislative response to a two-year federal crackdown on dispensaries in California by the Department of Justice, who claim that California’s largely unregulated medical marijuana industry has grown enormously profitable and out of control while making medical marijuana easily available for recreational use.

“This bill is not about the legalization of marijuana,” said Senate President Pro Tem Darre. . . . . READ MORE
