The article references SB 643, one of the three bills in the MMRSA bill package, but the "errant" March 1 deadline appears in AB 243. How errant it truly was is subject to some debate, and the big elephant in the room remains the unbridled authority of cities and counties to ban all things cannabis under MMRSA, including personal cultivation. A recent amendment to AB 21 to remove a troublesome line from the personal-use exemptions helps, but probably not enough to stop the bans or their enforcement against both businesses and individual patients.
