California Senate-Passed Psychedelics Legalization Bill Comes One Step Closer To Final Assembly Committee Vote

There are some concerns about the measure’s path in the Assembly

A California Senate-passed bill to legalize the possession and facilitated use of certain psychedelics has cleared a procedural hurdle, bringing it one step closer to a final Assembly committee vote before potentially advancing to the floor.

The measure from Sen. Scott Wiener (D) was advanced by the Assembly Appropriations Committee on Wednesday to the panel’s suspense file, a legislative formality that means it is primed for final action to determine whether it can advance to the floor. The sponsor told Marijuana Moment on Tuesday that he expects that to happen at a subsequent committee meeting on or around September 1.

Wiener previously expressed some concerns about the measure’s path in the Assembly, calling it a “challenging road” at one point, but it has already moved through two committees before Wednesday’s procedural development. If it is approved by the panel and then full chamber, it would still need to go back to the Senate for concurrence on certain amendments before potentially reaching the governor’s desk.
