Welcome back to Higher Law, our weekly briefing about all things cannabis. I’m Cheryl Miller, reporting for Law.com from Sacramento, where, in true California style, we’re still counting votes from Tuesday’s primary election.
➤➤ One thing’s clear: The two remaining gubernatorial candidates have very different views on marijuana. Democrat Gavin Newsom was a big supporter of California’s recreational-use initiative, Proposition 64. Republican John Cox opposes adult-use legalization and made headlines in March when he saidpot users should be hospitalized for substances abuse treatment, but not jailed. He later walked back those comments and said he backs medical marijuana.
