Assembly Bill 1207’s author, Assembly Member Jacqui Irwin, said some product packaging is leading to children being accidentally exposed to cannabis.
“Since the passage of Proposition 64, pediatric exposures to cannabis have increased exponentially,” Irwin wrote in an official explanation of the bill. “These exposures are

#psilocybin – “The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration told the Ninth Circuit on Wednesday that it was right to deny a physician’s request to reschedule psilocybin, but signaled that it was willing to revisit the issue if the court would remand the matter.

#californiacannabis – “On May 13, the 19th (almost annual) Emerald Cup celebrated cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, and retailers.
