On Thursday, legislation was sent to Governor Newsom that would ban the party busses that have boosted cannabis tourism.
- The bill was originally submitted as an aternative to legislation that would have allowed cannabis use in charter buses — as long as everyone aboard was over 21 and the driver compartment was shunted away from the smoking area.
- Predictably, critics such as Kevin Sabet lauded the decsion as industry boosters decried it. The legislation “runs counter to the will of California voters when they overwhelmingly approved Proposition 64,” said Lindsey Robinson, Executive Director of the California Cannabis Industry Association.
- The governor’s office isn’t sharing his thoughts the future of party busses.
