Re: “Do Or Die for Mystery Pot Law

I'm grateful for Assemblyman Ammiano's continued support of finding reasonable ways to advance patient access to medical cannabis. The 7/2/2014 version of SB 1262 (page 21, lines 33-36), gave law enforcement 100% veto power to obstruct all licensing throughout California if a license might "tend" to create any "problem for law enforcement" (perceived or real), including law enforcement in other states. Effectively that would have shut down all cultivators and dispensaries under SB 1262. That latest mock-up of SB 1262 (to be amended soon), is even worse and violates Fourth and Fifth Amendment civil rights over search & seizure, and protections against self-incrimination. SB 1262 is a mess!
