Drug Policy Forum of California - September 19th, 2014
Gov. Jerry Brown has posted a mixed record as Governor. To the disappointment of many fans, he dismissed calls for marijuana legalization with derogatory comments about "unproductive potheads." On the positive side, he signed legislation to expand access to clean syringes by drug users and a 911 Good Samaritan Act to protect callers from prosecution for illegal drug possession.

In 2009, overcrowding in California’s prisons had gotten so bad—140,000 inmates crammed into prisons built to house just 80,000—that federal judges ruled it violated prisoners’ civil rights. Under order to reduce the state’s prison population, Governor Jerry Brown introduced public safety realignment in 2011, a plan to send nonviolent inmates to county jails and probation departments rather than prison.

The recent California Court of Appeal decision in People v. Baniani firmly establishes the right of patients to access medical cannabis through a collective or cooperative. The Court stated what medical cannabis advocates have always believed, state law protects members of a collective or cooperative who are qualified patients and are not engaged in a profit-making enterprise.

If there is one thing cannabis activists, cannabis opponents, legislators, police and the cannabis industry in California can agree on, it’s that adult-use pot legalization (similar to Colorado and Washington) is coming. But, legalization is a complicated term in California. Although the state’s voters were the first in the nation to pass medical cannabis legislation via ballot initiative in 1996 (Prop 215), the state did not set guidelines for the massive industry expanding within its borders. And, for the first time this year medical cannabis advocates, police and municipal organizations came to the table to work on regulations together resulting in two bills. The second, and only remaining bill, SB 1262, died in committee this August amidst contentious debate from all sides.

The California Assembly Appropriations Committee held SB 1262 (Correa/Ammiano) in committee on August 15, meaning the bill will not proceed to the floor for a vote or be adopted this year. The controversial bill would have regulated doctors who recommend medical cannabis and commercial medical cannabis activity. Because both co-authors are serving their final term in the state legislature this year, it will be back to the drawing board for statewide medical cannabis regulations in 2015. This is the third time that the legislature has failed to adopt regulations for the state's seventeen year-old medical cannabis industry.

The San Diego Union-Tribune - August 21st, 2014
The shelving of legislation to enact meaningful statewide regulation of medical marijuana constitutes a failure of governance that should be unacceptable to Californians. For 18 years, the people sent to Sacramento to deal with problems such as those stemming from unregulated medical marijuana have utterly failed to do their job.
