California Senate Moves To End Discrimination Against Medical Marijuana Patients Seeking Organ Transplants

californiamedicalmarijuana

The California Senate approved AB 258, the Medical Cannabis Organ Transplant Act, earlier today by a margin of 31-1. AB 258 prohibits discrimination against medical cannabis patients in the organ transplant process, unless a doctor has determined that medical cannabis use is clinically significant to the transplant process. Medical cannabis patients in California are routinely removed from the organ transplant waiting list if they test positive for cannabis use – even legal doctor-recommended medical cannabis. AB 258 was authored by Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) and sponsored by Americans for Safe Access (ASA).
