It is hard to underestimate the impact of the passage of Assembly Bill 243, Assembly Bill 266 and Senate Bill 643, the new troika of legislative efforts which finally creates the first regulatory framework for the state medical industry since it technically became legal in 1996.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law three medical marijuana bills, the largest overhaul in state history. Although medical marijuana has been legal in the state for nearly two decades, the industry has been fraught with inconsistent laws and sporadic enforcement.
After nearly 20 years of neglect, the California State Assembly has finally taken steps to reign in the state’s medical marijuana system by voting 50-5 to approve a bill, AB 266, aimed at provided more structure to the loosely regulated program.
