Microgrowers Get Protection in California
California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law a bill making life easier for cannabis micro-farmers in the state.
The bill defines them as growers with less than 2500 sq. ft. canopy size for mixed-light cultivation, up to 25 mature plants outdoors, or less than 500 sq. ft. indoors.
The bill was sponsored by Assemblymember Jim Wood, whose North Coast district starts on the Oregon border and stretches down the state’s so-called “North Coast” almost to San Francisco. It includes the fabled counties of Humboldt and Mendocino.
Congress Won’t Let Veterans Access Medical Marijuana After All
An effort to allow veterans to access medical marijuana in states where it’s legal died Wednesday night when Congress passed a spending bill without the provision included.
The Veterans Equal Access Amendment would have nullified a Department of Veterans Affairs standard that keeps its doctors from recommending medical cannabis as treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and other conditions experienced by veterans. Veterans currently seeking medical pot must obtain a doctor’s recommendation outside of the VA system and pay the expense out of pocket.
