As a political advocate, Mr. Longwith is presently working to reform medical marijuana laws in cities throughout California. Mr. Longwith believes that patients in California deserve and are entitled to have dignified safe access to medical marijuana. Mr. Longwith has written and introducing initiatives in the cities of Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Placentia, San Clemente, and other cities throughout the state. The initiatives are referred to “Acts to Regulate and Restrict the Operation of Medical Marijuana Businesses” or the “ARRO” initiatives. If passed, the initiatives would allow cities to administer business licenses to medical marijuana dispensaries… finally.
Why are these medical marijuana initiatives necessary? Before answering that, lets talk about the problem. Back in 1996, the residents of California overwhelmingly passed Prop 215, the Compassionate Use Act which, under certain circumscribed circumstances, legalized medical marijuana in the sate of California. Within the text of Prop 215 it was demanded that government of the state of California come up with a framework to get medical marijuana into the hands of the patients who need it. The state has failed to do this. For the past nearly 20 years, California has sat on their hands and did nothing to implement the mandates of Prop 215. Moreover, last year the California Supreme Court in the case of The City of Riverside vs. Inland Empire Wellness Center ruled that cities can ban medical marijuana dispensaries in their borders through zoning laws. Consequently, the solution is to draft laws, initiatives, and allow the residents of the cities themselves to vote. That is exactly what I am doing. If you would like any additional information or would like to get involved in helping get these laws passed, please call my office at 714-699-4384.
