LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1300, Blumenfield. Medical marijuana.
Existing law establishes the Medical Marijuana Program to exempt certain qualified patients who hold an identification card issued pursuant to the program, and the caregivers of those persons from certain state criminal sanctions related to the possession, cultivation, transportation, processing, or use of limited amounts of marijuana, as specified. The program prohibits certain entities, including a medical marijuana cooperative or collective, from being located within a 600-foot radius of a school. Existing law also specifically provides that these provisions governing the program do not prevent a city or other local governing body from adopting and enforcing laws consistent with the program.
This bill would revise the latter provision described above to additionally provide that these provisions shall not prevent a city or other local governing body from adopting and enforcing local ordinances that regulate the location, operation, or establishment of a medical marijuana cooperative or collective, or from the civil or criminal enforcement of those local ordinances.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
