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 County Board of Supervisors and urge them to reject a ban and develop sensible medical cannabis regulations. ASA’s Online Action Center makes it easy to call and email your representatives right now!
