Medical Marijuana in California

Proposition 215, the "Compassionate Use Act"

The Compassionate Use Act is a voter initative, passed in 1996, that made California the first state to legalize marijuana for medical use

California Senate Bill 420

This bill was passed in 2004 with the following purpose: "(1) Clarify the scope of the application of the act and facilitate the prompt identification of qualified patients and their designated primary caregivers in order to avoid unnecessary arrest and prosecution of these individuals and provide needed guidance to law enforcement officers. (2) Promote uniform and consistent application of the act among the counties within the state. (3) Enhance the access of patients and caregivers to medical marijuana through collective, cooperative cultivation projects."
