The legalization of medical cannabis in California came with the passage of the California Proposition 215. However, with the passage of Proposition 215, also came some setbacks, one of them being California Proposition 19. Proposition 19 sought to legalize the sale of cannabis throughout the state, but due to the biases and fear related to the marijuana industry, the proposition failed to pass. The author explains the unique position California is in for the cannabis industry across the country and how it can work to help alleviate the fears of such a growing industry.
