(AP) — California regulators on Friday said marijuana deliveries can be made anywhere in the state, even in locales that ban marijuana.
Law enforcement groups and the California League of Cities opposed the move, arguing that marijuana deliveries to places that ban marijuana erodes local government control and will increase crime in those areas.
The matter has been one of the most debated issues as state regulators hammer out permanent rules for how marijuana is grown, tested, packaged and delivered.
The delivery issue was included in regulations drafted by the Bureau of Cannabis Control, which issues most retail permits.
The rules will become law in 30 days unless California’s Office of Administrative Law objects.
