Proposed Changes to Law Would Force Closure of Countless Dispensaries!

April 13, 2010

AB 2650, originally presented as a bill having to do with inmates and medical marijuana, would prevent dispensaries and other medical marijuana organizations from operating “located within a 1,000-foot radius of a school, public park, public library, religious institution, licensed child care facility, youth center, substance abuse rehabilitation center, or any preexisting medical marijuana cooperative, collective, dispensary, operator, establishment.” In many cases this would require collectives, cooperatives, and dispensaries, as well as clinics and all related businesses to close their doors or move to locations several miles away. The results of this could be devastating to patients, particularly those with limited mobility.  Preventing people from obtaining medication and doctors’ consultations in safe, regulated establishments does not benefit the community in any way and puts undue hardship on patients who strive to comply with the law while mitigating their suffering.

Contact your assemblyperson and let them know you are against AB 2650!
