Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"In 2003, the Legislature enacted additional legislation relating to medical marijuana.
One of those statutes requires the Attorney General to adopt 'guidelines to ensure the security and
nondiversion of marijuana grown for medical use.' To fulfill this mandate, this Office is issuing the following guidelines to (1) ensure that marijuana grown for medical purposes remains secure and does not find its way to non-patients or illicit markets, (2) help law enforcement agencies perform their duties effectively and in accordance with California law, and (3) help patients and primary caregivers understand how they may cultivate, transport, possess, and use medical marijuana under California law."
