That Included A Stipulation That Child Protective Services Can No Longer Restrict Parental Rights Based Solely On The Fact That Someone Is A Medical Marijuana Patient.

Though the state didnt pass any new medical marijuana legislation in 2016, Americans for Safe Access and others lobbied to get new protections for patients included in Proposition 64, the recreational marijuana measure approved by voters in November. That included a stipulation that Child Protective Services can no longer restrict parental rights based solely on the fact that someone is a medical marijuana patient. Those protections helped California earn a 10-point improvement in the organizations annual ranking, giving it that B+ score along with Michigan http://michiganmedicalmarijuana.biz/ and Illinois. Americans for Safe Access always gives states the benefit of the doubt that when they pass new legislation that they will actually implement those policies, Sherer said. So Californias high score is based on the assumption that it will carry out protections both in Prop. 64 and in a trio of bills passed in 2015, known as the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act. The big test will come this year, with a Jan. 1, 2018 deadline for California to roll out its new marijuana licensing and regulatory scheme. Whats key is just going to be getting the medical cannabis program implemented and getting the state licenses out, Sherer said. If it doesnt, she said the states score could potentially drop significantly next year.
