Sacramento today – Assemblyman Wood’s landmark Medical Marijuana Bill, The Marijuana Watershed Protection Act (AB 243), was passed by the Assembly today and now moves on to the State Senate. The passage of AB 243 marks the first medical marijuana bill this year that made it to the next house – State Senate.
Assemblyman Wood said, “The cultivation and sale of medical cannabis in my district isn’t just the elephant in the room, it’s the whole house. My district is also one of the most environmentally conscious regions in the state and we must continue fighting to protect it. That’s what AB 243 is all about, ensuring cannabis cultivation and cultivators are respecting the environment and protecting our natural resources.”
