Subject: California Could Become a Sanctuary State — for Marijuana
With a new bill proposed in California, the state could soon go against the federal marijuana prohibition. The bill would require a court order to take actions against a person suspected of marijuana use. This also prohibits law enforcement from responding to federal request for personal information or providing information on individuals with a license for marijuana. In addition, the bill also prohibits the transfer of an individual to federal law enforcement for anything marijuana related. The bill has been met with some opposition, especially from law enforcement groups, citing it would limit the effectiveness of their job.
- California's Assembly Bill 1578, if passed, would stop cooperation between state and federal law enforcement, when it comes to the state's marijuana policy.
- The law is also aimed at protecting legal marijuana businesses as long as they operate within the state's laws and regulations.
- Several states have approved marijuana use for at least medicinal purposes. Federal legislation has yet to be passed.
"The proposed law is essentially an attempt to strengthen California’s already existing laws, which conflict with federal policy on the plant."
