Marijuana, the herb with a long and storied history in the United States, has been legal for recreational use in California since 1996.
In recent years, however, marijuana’s status as a Schedule 1 narcotic has been questioned, and it has become a political issue in some states.
“It’s a very big issue,” says Jennifer Fieger, the director of the Marijuana Policy Project’s state branch.
“People are really worried about what’s happening in California, and I think it’s an issue that we’re all trying to focus on in our campaigns, because it’s a huge issue.”
California has a population of nearly 3 million.
California’s Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act of 2018, or MMPRS, established a regulatory framework for medical marijuana in the state.
The law is currently awaiting signature from Gov.
Gavin Newsom, and in the interim, the state is holding an open house to educate the public about the medical benefits of marijuana.
The state’s recreational marijuana market opened for business in January 2019, and the state’s dispensaries have been licensed and licensed and allowed to sell pot.
But despite the new regulation, some medical marijuana patients are concerned about the safety of their marijuana and say that it is more difficult to obtain than marijuana that is legally sold in California.
Medical marijuana patients say they often see police officers and other law enforcement officers at the dispensaries they visit to conduct raids and check IDs.
“The dispensaries are in some ways very much like medical facilities,” says Amanda Schulz, a medical marijuana patient who works for a nonprofit called California NORML.
“There’s no privacy there.
The dispensary is just like a police station.
There’s a police presence, there’s an officer watching.
So you feel like you’re in a police situation.
And then there’s a lot of intimidation.”
One woman who works at the dispensary says that she has been to a police officer twice, and once was at a party where she said a man approached her and a man in a green shirt tried to kiss her.
“You can hear them screaming at you,” she says.
“They’re just really loud.”
Schulz says she does not use marijuana and has not been in touch with anyone in the dispensary.
But she says she and other medical marijuana clients have had problems with police, and she fears for her safety.
“I’ve seen people get arrested and they’ve been in handcuffs,” she said.
“If someone was looking at me, they would not want to touch me, would they?
It’s like being in a jail.”
“They don’t care if they’re going to get caught with a bag of weed or if they get arrested for something.”
In California, medical marijuana is classified as a medical use, and dispensaries are required to obtain a license from the California Department of Public Health to operate.
Medical Marijuana Regulations and Safety Commissioner Jeff Fogle has said that marijuana can be legally used for medicinal purposes, but he has also said that it should be used safely.
He has called marijuana a “gateway drug” to other substances, such as alcohol and prescription drugs.
“As long as there is a doctor who says that marijuana is a gateway drug, and there is no risk of harm, that is acceptable,” he told the Sacramento Bee in April.
“That’s what it is.”
Fogle says that while he has heard many stories of people being harassed by police officers at dispensaries, he does not believe that people who smoke marijuana are the ones being harassed.
“We’re not targeting patients,” he said.
“No one’s getting harassed,” she told the Bee.
“But we are not targeting doctors.
We’re targeting people who are on a path to becoming doctors, and we’re not going after those people.”
In 2017, the federal government issued a report that concluded that medical marijuana had medical benefits, but said that there were risks associated with its use.
The report also recommended that the federal Department of Health and Human Services stop enforcing federal prohibition on marijuana.
But the report’s authors also noted that the medical use of marijuana was still illegal, and that marijuana was “not a controlled substance.”
The federal government has not officially responded to the report, and officials at the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the DEA told the Washington Post that the agency does not comment on pending legal matters.
“DEA’s position remains that marijuana use is a federal criminal offense and we continue to oppose the use of the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) to criminalize cannabis use,” the DEA spokesperson wrote.
The DEA also noted in the statement that it does not provide data on marijuana arrests and marijuana possession charges.
However, a DEA spokesperson told the LA Times that the DEA had a “very robust enforcement program” and that the department had “significant resources and resources in place to continue to fight for
