Bills Would Regulate Medical Marijuana in California
The state Legislature has until Friday to pass two bills -- AB 604 by Assembly member Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) and SB 439 by Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) -- that would apply statewide standards to growing, selling and distributing marijuana for medical use, which became legal in the state in 1996. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) would have until Oct. 13 to sign or veto the measures if they are approved by the Legislature.
