If You Support CA AB 2312, Now Is The Time For Action Joe April 24, 2012 Activism, Exclusive Web Content, Medical Marijuana News, Politics, The War On Drugs As California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano’s medical marijuana regulation bill – AB 2312 – makes its way through the state legislature, the advocacy group Americans For Safe Access is urging supporters to make their voice heard in Sacramento. ASA sent out this email alert yesterday: Take action today! Tell Members of Assembly Appropriations Committee to Support AB 2312, a bill to establish a regulatory body to develop and implement statewide standards for medical cannabis (marijuana) cultivation and provision, and authorize local jurisdictions to adopt reasonable regulations of their own.

Mitchell) Assemblyman Fuentes 916-319-2039 Assemblyman Blumenfield 916-319-2040 Assemblyman Bradford 916-319-2051 Assemblyman Calderon 916-319-2058 Assemblywoman Campos 916-319-2023 Assemblyman Davis 916-319-2048 Assemblyman Donnelly 916-319-2059 Assemblyman Gatto 916-319-2043 Assemblyman Hall 916-319-2052 Assemblyman Hill 916-319-2019 Assemblyman Lara 916-319-2050 Assemblyman Solorio 916-319-2069 TALKING POINTS: * Statewide regulation of MCDs will bring stability and accountability to the field of medical cannabis while ensuring all Californians have safe access. * AB 2312 is worth-while investment for CA and worth the costs * Sales tax generated from the legal sale of medical cannabis generates close to $100 million/year for CA * Regulated MCDs create good paying jobs, often with full benefits. * Effective regulation is good for everyone – patients, providers, doctors, and even law enforcement. As a libertarian I am naturally inclined to oppose regulation, but in the case of medical marijuana in California it’s obvious to everyone that cut and dried rules concerning the industry are needed since many local and county governments are using legal confusion to ban dispensaries and collectives and otherwise stomp all over voter intent when it comes to Proposition 215. - Joe Klare Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
