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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1302 without my signature.

AB 1302 would allow billboard-based cannabis advertising almost anywhere along any Interstate Highway or State Highway - except for within a 15-mile radius of the California border.

When the voters passed Proposition 64, they enacted robust protections shielding youth from exposure to cannabis and cannabis advertising. Among other things, voters completely prohibited billboard-based cannabis advertising on all Interstate Highways, and on all State Highways that cross the California border. Allowing advertising on these high-traffic thoroughfares could expose young passengers to cannabis advertising.

AB 1302 would weaken the protections passed in Proposition 64. California can refine and advance its regulation of cannabis while also remaining faithful to the will of the voters, and I will continue to work with the author to strike this balance. For these reasons, I am returning AB 1302 without my signature.


Sincerely,




Gavin Newsom
