Aaron Herzberg, who is a partner and general counsel for the Santa Ana-based cannabis real estate company CalCann Holdings LLC, described Spicers statements as saber rattling. If in fact Trump were to reinstitute raids on medical marijuana facilities that would http://www.michiganmedicalmarijuana.biz be a major setback for the industry, he wrote in a statement.

California has been working to reconcile separate regulations for medical cannabis under the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act and the newly adopted recreational cannabis laws under Proposition 64.

Allen said the White Houses stance could now shift the states focus to medical cannabis only depending on how state leaders respond.
