Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 1127 without my signature.

This bill permits local schools to adopt policies regarding the use of medical marijuana by students on school grounds.

This bill is overly broad as it applies to all students instead of limited cases where a doctor recommends medical marijuana for a student in order to prevent or reduce the effects of a seizure. Generally, I remain concerned about the exposure of marijuana on youth and am dubious of its use for youth for all ailments. This bill goes too far -- further than some research has -- to allow use of medical marijuana for youth. I think we should pause before going much further down this path.
