Congresswoman Lee Releases Statement On New Regulations For California’s Medical Marijuana Industry

barbara lee california marijuanaToday, Congresswoman Barbara Lee released this statement on California’s new regulations for the state’s cannabis industry:

“I am pleased that the California legislature has taken an important step forward by passing a comprehensive regulatory framework to improve patient care, provide greater certainty for the industry and protect our environment.

In Congress, I intend to continue working toward federal government policies that respect state marijuana laws. The federal government should not come between patients and their medicine.

That is why I have introduced the States Medical Marijuana Property Rights Protection Act (H.R. 262) and am a proud cosponsor of other legislation including the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act (H.R. 1013), Respect State Marijuana Laws Act (H.R.1940) and the Marijuana Business Access to Banking Act (H.R. 2076).”

    What a shame… this illegal modification of Prop 215 will not stand, and Lee has just marked herself for a primary from a more progressive candidate. Unless she was planning on retiring anyway, that is.
