Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends that California legislators continue making much needed improvements to the state’s medical cannabis program. One particular area of focus within California should be the sense of urgency with which these improvements are enacted. Patients have been waiting for improvements to the program for some time, and passing legislation does not do much to improve the patient experience until it is enacted. In light of the adult-use/recreational laws, California should also focus on passing provisions included in ASA’s Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist.
