  • Senator Boxer supports CARERS as ASA members head to DC!

    US Senator Barbara BoxerCalifornia Senator Barbara Boxer is supporting the CARERS Act in Congress. It is great to see one of our state Senators standing up for our voter-approved medical cannabis laws! I will be with hundreds of other advocates in Washington, DC, this week to talk about the CARERS Act and much more at the National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference and Citizen Lobby Day. Check FaceBook and Twitter for updates if you cannot make it.

    Here in California, the City of Malibu is stalling on approving a dispensary permit, while Ocenside is pushing to close all of its facilities. And Fresno County keeps imposing exorbitant fines for cultivators. Not all the news is bad this week. Tulare County backed off a plan to toughen its medical cannabis regulations, and San Diego’s first legally permitted facility is finally open. Patients in Clearlake are fighting back against a cultivation ban in court.

    Mark your calendar for important city council and legislative dates coming up in Vallejo and Sacramento. Get all the medical cannabis news, events, and court support dates in ASA’s California Weekly Roundup for Monday, March 23.
