AB 1606, as introduced, Cooper. Edible marijuana products.
Existing law, the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), enacted by the voters at the November 8, 2016, statewide general election, regulates the cultivation, distribution, and use of marijuana for nonmedical purposes by people 21 years of age and older.
