Harris Calls for Clarification of State Medical Marijuana Law
On Wednesday, California Attorney General Kamala Harris (D) wrote a letter to Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) and Assembly Speaker John PÃ©rez (D-Los Angeles) urging lawmakers to clarify the state's medical marijuana law. According to Harris, the law has several provisions that are open for interpretation. For example, Harris asked lawmakers to clarify whether retail marijuana dispensaries are legal, or whether individuals must obtain the drug through patient collectives.
