CCSA is Americans for Safe Access’ oldest state campaign. There are more legal patients, providers, and recommending physicians in California than any other state. More than 1.4 million patients have safe, reliable, and dignified access to medicine in the state, but significant challenges remain.

ASA WEBSITE SPOTLIGHT
Americans for Safe Access (ASA) tracks legislation related to medical cannabis in California. We work with lawmakers, staff, and other stakeholders to support beneficial bills and amendments and stop legislation and amendments that erode patients' rights. Use the links on this page to locate the most up-to-date versions of bills, ASA position letters, and related documents. Bookmark this page and check back often.
Contact Your Local Representatives About Medical Cannabis Licensing (California)
Some California cities have moved forward with licensing for commercial medical cannabis activity since Governor Brown signed the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) earlier this year. Unfortunately, others have reacted by banning some or all medical cannabis businesses and organizations. Most cities and counties have yet to act. Your local representatives need to hear from you whether they have licensed medical cannabis, banned it, or have done nothing at all.
