State May Keep Dispensaries Away From Schools

A bill to keep medical cannabis dispensaries at least 600 feet away from California’s schools is wending its way through the digestive tract of Sacramento. The buffer rule would be consistent with most local ordinances than ban liquor stores within 600 feet of schools, Assemblymember Joan Buchanan (D-Alamo) stated in a April 22 press release. Her bill, AB 2650, passed the Assembly Public Safety Committee with bipartisan support yesterday. The bill also would keep dispensaries away from both public and private schools, thereby clearing up confusion experienced in other cities, including Berkeley.
