Who regulates medical marijuana in California? Well, basically, nobody. State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano wants to change that. Today he announced legislation, introduced last month, that would bring medical cannabis under the policing of the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
The proposal is called AB 473 and it would mandate that the ABC police “the entire supply chain” and “work to eliminate criminal involvement in the industry.”The language of the bill also states that pot would be tested and that guidelines for growing would be established. LA Weekly has the rest.
