Cal NORML is teaming up with Americans for Safe Access to sponsor a California Citizens Lobby Day in Sacramento on June 5th. Our honored guest speaker will be Assembly Member Reginald Jones-Sawyer of Los Angeles, the author of AB 1578, a bill to prevent state law enforcement from cooperating with federal authorities to interfere in activities that are lawful under California’s cannabis laws.
More than forty medical cannabis bills are on the table this year. It is important that lawmakers hear from you before they vote on bills about commercial regulations, drugged driving, federal non-cooperation, and more. The Governor’s trailer bill to combine regulations for medical and adult-use marijuana and other bills that could be helpful or hurtful to small farmers and consumers are expected to be on the table.
We are also planting seeds this year for important legislation in 2018 to protect medical cannabis patients from discrimination. ASA and California NORML hope to sponsor bills next year to prevent employment discrimination, and to protect legal patients who must also use opiate drugs. Your participation this year can help make that happen!
