California Cannabis Association Opposes Prop 19

The California Cannabis Association says although Proposition 19 is supposed to decriminalize pot, it will actually make it harder for medical marijuana users to get access to their prescriptions. The association says that's because the measure still allows cities to ban the sale of marijuana.

"Proposition 19 is a direct assault on medical marijuana patients."   

George Mull is the group's president.

"Prop 19 is deeply flawed, and creates a chaotic, local, 'you figure it out' approach to marijuana regulation. That won't work."

But Prop 19 supporters say making pot more accessible for recreational users will mean it's easier for everyone to get marijuana. Jeff Jones is a supporter of Prop 19 and director of the patient id center.

"It's going to be lowering the price of the medicine that they use, making available in a safer way than it currently is, and I think making it more available than it is already."

Jones says dispensaries that are allowed now, will be protected under Prop 19 as well.
