Rally at the State Capitol Against Senate Bill 289, The 'Drugged Driving Bill'

The Medical Cannabis Community is uniting with the “Legalize it” community in a show of force against this discriminatory law.



(SACRAMENTO/STOCKTON/MODESTO SacNORML) - In conjunction with Cal NORML, Safe Access Sacramento (SAS), Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), Lawmen Protecting Patients (LLP) Crusaders for Patients Rights (CPR) and The Human Solution will be gathering outside the California State Capitol for a Rally against Assembly Bill 289 that will be heard by the Senate Public Safety Committee on April 23rd.

If passed, this law would establish that anyone testing positive for a schedule one narcotic is “Drugged Driving”. Prescription drugs will get an exemption, but this leaves out medical cannabis which is only obtained by a doctor’s recommendation.

This would make it illegal for anyone using cannabis to drive, since THC stays in your system for weeks. Any regular cannabis user behind the wheel of a car, at any time, would be a criminal under this proposed legislation.

The Medical Cannabis Community is uniting with the “Legalize it” community in a show of force against this discriminatory law.

Each group will have representation, there will be speakers and organizational information on how to fight the bill will be distributed.
