Assemblymember Cooley Urges Governor to Sign Historic Medical Marijuana Legislation
(Oakland, CA) – Assemblymember Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) joined Assemblymembers Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) and Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale) and a strong coalition of supporters from local government, patient advocacy groups, labor, and the medical marijuana industry for a press conference to urge Governor Jerry Brown to sign a trio of medical marijuana bills that passed the Legislature on a bipartisan vote. The trio of bills include AB 266, AB 243, and SB 643. Together they mark the furthest legislation has ever gone in the state to establish a regulatory framework for medical marijuana. “With the passage of AB 266, the Legislature took a historic step to strongly regulate medical marijuana and ensure patient access and protection,” said Assemblymember Cooley. “I am proud of the work we have done and look forward to the Governor signing these important bills.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
