Assembly Member Ken Cooley Announces New Medical Marijuana Legislation

Assembly Member Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) today announced the introduction of AB 266, medical marijuana legislation providing a much needed framework to effectively implement Proposition 215 (1996), the Compassionate Use Act. The bill is largely based on last year’s SB 1262 by former Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) and enjoys bipartisan support, as it has Assembly Member Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale) as co-author. AB 266 embodies three fundamental priorities: advancing local control; protecting public safety; and protecting public health by creating uniform health and safety standards to ensure the safe, lawful distribution of medical marijuana in those cities and counties in which it is authorized.
