Contact your California State Senator and ask him or her to vote yes on SB 1262 this week. SB 1262 is a bill by Senator Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) that would regulate commercial medical cannabis activity in the state. In its newly amended form, the bill places state regulatory control and licensing in the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) and sets common-sense standards for cultivation and distribution. ASA supports SB 1262 because our research and experience show that sensible regulations preserve safe and dignified access to medical cannabis for patients, while reducing crime and complaints in neighborhoods.
Click here to email your California Senator today.
ASA worked hard to improve this bill from its original version. We succeeded in having onerous restrictions on doctors removed and in having an appropriate state agency designated. We are confident that DCA has the appropriate mission and experience to properly regulate medical cannabis for consumers. Patients are standing together with law enforcement, local government, and others to support SB 1262 as a big step in the right direction.
Tell your Senator to support SB 1262 when it comes for a vote on the Senate floor this week!
