According to Arreguin, the approved resolution doesnt prevent the city from....

The Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday that Chiang had a conference call with State Attorney General Xavier Becerra to talk about the logistics of creating a public bank.

A previously pot friendly rural Northern California county has reversed course and banned commercial marijuana farms, paving the way for lawsuits from growers who previously received permits and paid taxes.
A newly constituted Calaveras County board of supervisors last week voted 3-2 to ban marijuana, giving some 200 farmers with permits about three months to wind down operations. The vote to ban occurred less than a month after California authorized retail sales of marijuana for recreational use in cities and counties that approve of pot operations within their borders.

California Bill Would Automatically Expunge Past Marijuana Convictions
California Assemblymember Rob Bonta D-Oakland has introduced legislation that would require county courts to automatically expunge the records of those who have been charged with a marijuana-related crime thats since been legalized, reports Kathleen Ronayne of the Associated Press.
In 2016 California voters approved the ability to wipe criminal marijuana conviction records as a provision in the legalization initiative Proposition 64. However, the existing law requires people with convictions to initiate the process themselves, but many people dont often because they dont know they can, as the option has received little publicity For some, the process is simply to complicated and costly. Although roughly 5,000 people have applied for an expungement as of 2017, its only a small portion of the total number of people eligible.
The proposed law would chan....
