Medical Marijuana Clean-Up Bill Heads to Governor

League-Supported AB 21 Eliminates March 1 Cultivation Deadline for Local Governments

The Assembly today unanimously passed AB 21 (Wood) on a vote of 66-0, sending the bill to Gov. Jerry Brown for his expected signature. As an urgency measure, it will take effect immediately upon the Governor’s signature. This important League-supported legislation removes the March 1, 2016 deadline for cities and counties to pass cultivation ordinances or face state pre-emption. Introduced on Jan. 5, the final action on AB 21 late this week culminates a mere 24 days of legislative work by Assembly Member Jim Wood (D-Healdsburg) with the strong backing of the League of California Cities, the California Police Chiefs Association, patient advocates, industry and other stakeholders.
