As we let you know last Friday, we received some really 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 by no means received a “no” vote.
We nevertheless do not know the complete particulars why, but we’ve been assured that AB 228, or a bill like it, will pass just before the finish of January, if not earlier.
But as we just discovered, we can not take good thoughts for granted. We require your assistance Nowadays.
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 equivalent bill.
- To get in touch with the Governor to urge him to instruct the California Division of Public Wellness to cease and desist on any enforcement actions when the legislature deliberates. We can not enable them to continue to cast a pall on this thriving sector.
We have created it uncomplicated for you in our State Action Center: just sort 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 business enterprise.
And please rally all of your mates in California to join these efforts now. When we share our voices, we win!
