California Bill Would Establish New Medical Pot Rules

A bill in the California legislature would set up state-wide rules for how doctors can prescribe marijuana. The bill would also require the state Department of Health to oversee medical pot distribution.

California voters approved the use of medicinal marijuana in 1996.

Kim Raney with the California Police Chiefs Association says the time has finally come for law enforcement to have a voice in setting the rules.

Its our goal that this legislation will provide more of a legitimate doctor-patient relationship, where there has to be an in-person visit, a real relationship with the doctor.

Under the bill, primary care physicians would have to write referalls for medicinal pot prescriptions. The State Department of Health would also regulate the medicinal pot industry.

Doctor Amanda Reiman with the Drug Policy Alliance says the bill is too prohibitive.

We believe the guidelines are far too restrictive and in the end would actually upset access for qualified patients in California.

Reiman also says that the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control should regulate medicinal cannabis as a restricted product.

So with what we have just found out about Leland lee, can we assume that the Calif. politicians that support this bill are all in the drug running business ? stands to reason that all the democrats are crooks, so why not drug dealers and drug traffickers too ? oh I forgot, it's bush's fault

Sounds like the streets are missing their money and corrupt, uninformed, archaic humans just don't get that this is what people want.
Freedom..from the streets. Your driving it to the streets with this legislation.
We want to use Cannabis in any form or reason we choose as free people.
Cannabis is here to stay and the bottom line for government as far as any of their business, is to protect the users and the distribution. That's it. Get the hell out of the way!
Go drink your wine or whatever life killing drink of choice and STF Up!
