Cunningham legislation to keep marijuana out of schools earns approval from key committee 

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R-Templeton) announced this week his legislation to keep schools drug-free was approved by the Senate Health Committee.

The committee endorsed AB 1090 which prohibits possession of marijuana while on a school campus at any time. Recreational marijuana was recently legalized through Proposition 64, and Cunningham’s bill will help ensure marijuana is kept away from children as the drug comes onto the market.

“We need to be unambiguously clear that marijuana does not belong on school grounds,” said Assemblyman Cunningham. “This bill achieves this goal.”

Assembly Bill 1090 carries the support of the California Police Chiefs Association, the California District Attorneys Association, the California Peace Officers Association, the Peace Officers Research Association of California, and the California School Boards Association. The bill will now be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
