The California Appellate Court recently ruled that cities and counties are limited in their ability to regulate medical cannabis patients’ cooperatives and collectives. The state Supreme Court has not yet decided whether or not to hear an appeal of Pack v. City of Long Beach, but some cities and counties are citing the Pack decision as a reason for banning patients’ associations or abandoning their regulatory process. That means patients may lose the safe access on which they have come to rely!
Take time today to email your City Council and urge them to reject a ban and maintain their current medical cannabis regulations. ASA’s Online Action Center makes it easy to email your representatives right now!
Please act now. The Richmond City Council will vote on repealing the city's medical cannabis ordinance on Tuesday, November 15.
