The Committee for Safe Patient Access to Regulated Cannabis is a group of dedicated medical cannabis patients and providers working to put a ballot initiative forward in Sacramento County that will ensure qualified patients have safe and responsible access to regulated cannabis medicines, and provide much needed revenues for public safety, education, and healthcare.

The Patient Access to Regulated Medical Cannabis Act of 2012 would aim to bring cannabis clubs back to Sacramento County, albeit on a smaller scale. The details include:
1. Allowing cannabis dispensaries in the county at the rate of one club per every 25,000 residents. This would create 20 to 25 new dispensaries, as opposed to the 80 to 100 clubs that existed before.
2. Tax all cannabis sales at 4 percent. This tax is comparable to the tax on cannabis levied by the city of Sacramento.
3. Place limits on the types of advertising cannabis dispensaries can use. No more monster-sized pot leaves or cartoons or pinup girls.
4. Mandate that all medical-cannabis dispensaries in the county be at least 1,000 feet from all schools, parks or youth-oriented facilities.
