RCRC has lent its support to Assembly Bill 1530, authored by Assembly Member Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova). AB 1530 furthers the position that municipalities can regulate and/or prohibit mobile deliveries of cannabis products.
Several weeks ago, regulations were adopted by the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) that allow for mobile deliveries of cannabis products even in counties that prohibit this activity. As such, municipalities are left with two options to counter these regulations. The first, is to make the law even more clear by enacting AB 1530 which simply says “A local jurisdiction may adopt an ordinance or resolution pursuant to Section 26200 that permits, restricts, limits, or bans the delivery of cannabis or cannabis products to a location within its jurisdictional boundaries.” The second option is to challenge the validity of the regulations in court – something that is regrettable, but necessary.
RCRC’s support letter can be accessed here. Currently, AB 1530 awaits consideration in the Assembly. For more information, Paul A. Smith, RCRC Governmental Affairs Vice President, can be reached at (916) 447-4806 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
