Nov. 5, 1991 – First Medical Marijuana Initiative Passed in San Francisco

Proposition P called on the State of California and the California Medical Association to ‘restore hemp medical preparations to the list of available medicines in California,’ and not to penalize physicians ‘from prescribing hemp preparations for medical purposes.'”
