California Roundup Updates

We would also like to hear about medical cannabis issues in your community that are not being reported in the media – i.e. bans, moratoria, or regulations for patient’s coops; law enforcement activity; etc. Just include the basics – who, what, when, where, and why. We also need your contact information. There is no need to send media stories. We get those already!

ASA staff will compile all of the news, meetings, and events into a digest format, with links for more information, where applicable. Sometimes we may have to edit for brevity or clarity, or omit some items due to the length of the digest. Please remember that the California Weekly Roundup is exclusively for medical cannabis news, meetings, and events in California. At their sole discretion, staff may choose not to include items that are not germane.

Send items for the California Weekly Roundup to CARoundup@SafeAccessNow.org before 12:00 PM on Wednesday to be included in Friday's distribution.

Thanks for helping us bring this important tool to the grassroots base!
