OK, EVERYONE WAS GETTING CONFUSED ABOUT BILLS, SO HERE IS BREAKDOWN

From: votedebbietharp – January 1, 1970

Ok here’s the breakdown of the new cannabis regulations passed by the senate: AB 266 is the tiered licensing system. It has special exemptions in it for Measure D and for the closed loop cultivation delivery and transportation. They will continue to have these special advantages over everyone in the industry until 2026. Yes you MAY be able to remain operational if you are operational now but there are additional caveats in AB243. You may be considered FIRST for licensing once the system becomes fully operational in 2018 or 19 and this is really important because some of the licenses will only be given in limited numbers. Remember the boondoggle around Santa Ana and Long Beach All that money and all those bribes taking place Yeah it’s like that but on a statewide level. Oh and by the way code enforcement officers now have access to your medical records. Yey They are protecting patients NOT AB 243 is cultivation. It still has most of the licensing requirements that were in the first versions we saw. I’ll give a detailed analysis in a bit of all of these. There are serious problems one being that they haven’t even spelled out where the money is going. There are a few good things in this. Oh and they dropped the 60 million dollar excise tax but don’t worry they are going to fix that in the Spring session. SB 643 is the attack against the doctors. (3) Repeated acts of clearly excessive prescribing furnishing or administering of controlled substances or repeated acts of prescribing dispensing or furnishing of controlled substances without a good faith prior examination of the patient and medical reason therefor. However in no event shall a physician and surgeon prescribing furnishing or administering controlled substances for intractable pain consistent with lawful prescribing including but not limited to Sections 725 2241.5 and 2241.6 of this code and Sections 11159.2 and 124961 of the Health and Safety Code be prosecuted for excessive prescribing and prompt review of the applicability of these provisions shall be made in any complaint that may implicate these provisions. (4) Repeated acts of clearly excessive recommending of cannabis to patients for medical purposes or repeated acts of recommending cannabis to patients for medical purposes without a good faith prior examination of the patient and a medical reason for the recommendation. So good luck getting a recommendation but hey they protected the patients NOT — You received this message because you are part of the SaveCannabis group.

V I C T O R Y !

From: steve – January 1, 1970

BAIT AND SWITCH All that terrible stuff that we got removed from AB 266 was simply moved over to SB 643. This is beyond corrupt Here is the actual amended text from SB 643: “This bill would require that the Medical Board of California prioritize its investigative and prosecutorial resources to identify and discipline physicians and surgeons that have repeatedly recommended excessive cannabis to patients for medical purposes or repeatedly recommending cannabis to patients for medical purposes without a good faith examination as specified. The bill would become operative only if AB 266 of the 201516 Regular Session is enacted and takes effect on or before January 1 2016. > On Sep 11 2015 at 8:09 PM Debbie Tharp wrote: > > Steve Oh Steve I’m so sorry to tell you.

Now doctors will be afraid to recommend this healing herb and sick people will die because of you and this ill conceived bill. –Steve Kubby Executive Director The American Medical Marijuana Association http:americanmarijuana.org ————————————————————————————— This email has been scanned for email related threats and delivered safely by Mimecast.
