California Assemblymember Tom Ammiano’s (D-SF) AB 2312 will establish a regulatory body to develop and implement statewide standards for medical cannabis (marijuana) cultivation and provision, limit local taxation of medicine, and make banning legal patients’ associations harder. Many local governments are uncertain about the scope of state law and reluctant to move forward with sensible regulations. A statewide standard will help address this ambivalence.
When California voters approved Proposition 215 in 1996, they called on their elected officials “to implement a plan to provide for the safe and affordable distribution of marijuana to all patients.” AB 2312 is an important step towards fulfilling that goal.
