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.
