Two bills are being heard in the Assembly next week! | NORML

April 08, 2018

California’s Assembly is set to hold hearings on two different marijuana related bills next week. It is imperative that constituents like yourself show up to express your support for these efforts. Even though cannabis is legal in California, there is still so much more work to be done.

The first bill, AB 1793, would allow automatic expungement or reduction of a prior cannabis conviction that is no longer defined as a crime as of January 1, 2017, or for a crime that as of that date is subject to a lesser sentence.

AB 1793 will be heard by the Assembly’s Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, April 17 at 9am.

Send a message to your lawmakers in support of expungement and resentencing

The second bill, AB 2069, would explicitly bar employers from discriminating against workers solely because of their status as a medical cannabis patient, or due to testing positive for medical marijuana use on a workplace drug test.

AB 2069 will be heard by the Assembly’s Labor And Employment Committee on Wednesday, April 18 at 1:30pm.

Send a message to your lawmakers in support of employment protection for patients

Make your voice heard and show your support for further cannabis policy reforms at California’s capitol, and remember to dress professionally and be respectful.

See you at the capitol!
