Calif. Senate Panel Passes Bill Aimed at Increasing Oversight of Medical Marijuana Industry
On Monday, the California Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee advanced a measure (SB 1262) that aims to impose greater oversight of the medical marijuana industry. However, Sen. Lou Correa (D-Anaheim), who introduced the bill, pledged to work with opponents of the measure -- including physician groups and local governments -- to compromise on some of its provisions.
