Personal Possession Limits Added to California Decrim Bill to Move It Through Health Committee

CANNANNEW REPORT

Lucid News are reporting.. The California Senate legislation to decriminalize certain psychedelic substances under state law, SB 519, has been amended by its authors to include possession limits during a challenging path through the State Assembly. Possession limits have become a contentious issue for activists who have differing views of how they will impact users.Changes were made to the bill prior to a State Assembly Health Committee hearing on July 13th (starting at 1:21:47) where the bill was moved forward in a 8-4 vote, with three committee members abstaining. The Assembly Health Committee consists of fifteen Assembly members with a range of views on drug law reform. CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO LISTEN /WATCH THE HEARING  The language of SB 519 was amended by its authors prior to the Health Committee to add thresholds for personal possession and exchanging the term “social sharing” for “facilitated or supported use” to more explicitly allow for ceremonial group consumption. Without these amendments in place, the bill received too much pushback to pass.
