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

I am returning Senate Bill 663 without my signature.

This bill outlines standards that will determine if cannabis packages or labels are attractive to children.

Current law already prohibits cannabis and cannabis products from being designed to be attractive to children.

State licensing authorities are currently drafting emergency regulations on packaging and labeling for the cannabis industry, which must take effect before January 1, 2018. This process is more nimble than statute and allows the licensing authorities to respond to the changing industry. Rather than creating new statutory restrictions, it would be prudent to allow licensing authorities to finish drafting the regulations.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
