As we let you know last Friday, we received some incredibly disappointing news from Sacramento: AB 228, legislation that would have legalized the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD in California, was declared dead for the session. This caught us by surprise – the bill had been by means of five committees and the Home floor, and had under no circumstances received a “no” vote.
We nonetheless do not know the complete particulars why, but we’ve been assured that AB 228, or a bill like it, will pass prior to the finish of January, if not earlier.
But as we just discovered, we can’t optimistic thoughts for granted. We need to have your aid These days.
Please use our online State Action Center to get in touch with your state legislators with two urgent requests:
- To get in touch with the leaders of the Senate Appropriations Committee, exactly where the bill was held, to enable consideration this month on AB 228 or a comparable bill.
- To get in touch with the Governor to urge him to instruct the California Division of Public Well being to cease and desist on any enforcement actions though the legislature deliberates. We can’t enable them to continue to cast a pall on this thriving market.
We have produced it quick for you in our State Action Center: just kind in your name, e-mail and zip code, and a message will be populated and sent straight to your representatives in California. Really feel absolutely free to personalize the message to let your reps know what hemp and CBD imply to you, your household, your farm, and/or your small business.
And please rally all of your buddies in California to join these efforts right now. When we share our voices, we win!
