California: Support Legislation to Protect Marijuana Laws From Federal Interference

Update: Read third time and amended on May 8. Ordered to third reading.

Update: AB 1578 was passed by members of the Public Safety Committee on April 18 by a vote of 5-2.

Legislation is pending, Assembly Bill 1578, to try and limit potential federal interference in the state’s marijuana regulatory laws.

The bill states, “This bill would prohibit a state or local agency, as defined, from taking certain actions without a court order signed by a judge, including using agency money, facilities, property, equipment, or personnel to assist a federal agency to investigate, detain, detect, report, or arrest a person for commercial or noncommercial marijuana or medical cannabis activity that is authorized by law in the State of California and transferring an individual to federal law enforcement authorities for purposes of marijuana enforcement.”

The majority of Californians desire a legally regulated marijuana market. Passage of this act will limit state or local agencies from working with the federal government to undermine these regulations. 

Please use the pre-written letter below to contact your elected officials in support of AB 1578. Additional information regarding pending legislation is available from California NORML.
