California lawmakers are now in rush to correct some serious issues regarding the proposed Marijuana Law. The legislation is said to stabilize the state's medical marijuana industry and reports elicited reactions from recreational users.
State of California is constructing a new medical marijuana regulation law but turned out to have an issue in the process. According to Breit Bart, the State Assembly passed down AB 21 which will fix last year's Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act after having problems with the language used. The vote was 65-0 on Thursday which is unanimous and will go to Governor Jerry Brown's table for awaiting signature.
The Assembly Bill 21 have been authored to eliminate the deadline set regarding the Marijuana Law and give local governments more time as stated in Biz Journals. The article further wrote that Assemblyman Rob Bonta, who is co-authoring the bill, stated that under the AB 21, there will be no deadline and local cities will negate all pressures to adhere in the March 1 deadline set. This is after the tight deadline caused some of the state's cities to ban all cultivation of medical marijuana. Lastly, the bill clarifies that all marijuana products must be inspected for their safety, specially the edibles and creates a state licensed medical marijuana for delivery service.
On the other side, reactions rose regarding the California new Marijuana Law. In the article written in The Sun, consumers reacted on the effect of regularization of this marijuana bill saying that it would not make things easy for events such as High Times Social Medical Cannabis Cup. This is after the event would require a medical card or a doctor's recommendation to consume cannabis on the site. The event is a massive one for marijuana consumers and a personnel claimed that they have thousands of attendees but would increase more once California legalizes the use.
California lawmakers have just scrambled a new bill to fix issues regarding the state's new marijuana bill. The legislation is being drafted to stabilize the medical marijuana industry which has been unregulated for nearly two decades. The bill has been passed down where there was unanimous voting and now will wait for the Gov. Brown's signature. Reactions regarding the California's new medical marijuana law has surfaced after requiring a doctor's recommendation before use.
