Despite California’s legalization of cannabis, the Trump Administration recently threatened to use federal enforcement to continue treating medical cannabis or marijuana use as illegal. Californians have spoken on this issue, and AB 1578 would ensure that, absent a court order, local and state agencies will not assist federal agents in taking action against citizens who are operating legally under California law. This would help protect our citizens from unwelcome federal overreach and protects limited state and local resources from being used unlawfully. (This bill died.)
