In 2015, three bills, AB 266 (Bonta, et al.), AB 243 (Wood) and SB 643 (McGuire), <br />or collectively the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), was signed <br />into law. MMRSA established three fundamental tenets: 1) advancing local control; 2) <br />protecting public safety; and 3) creating uniform health and safety standards that ensure <br />the lawful distribution of medical marijuana in those cities and counties in which it is <br />authorized. <br />On November 8, 2016, California voters approved Proposition 64 (Prop 64), the "Adult <br />Use of Marijuana Act." Prop 64 legalized nonmedical use of marijuana by persons 21 <br />years of age and over, and the personal cultivation of up to six (6) marijuana plants per <br />1 <br />
