Anna Boyce: Prop 215 & Medical Marijuana Icon
Anna T. Boyce, a registered nurse, was an author of California Proposition 215. Prop 215 made history back in November 1996, when it became the very first medical marijuana ballot initiative in the country to be approved at the state level, getting 55.6 percent of the vote and setting a precedent followed in numerous places. Directly and indirectly, Prop 215 made it possible for countless patients to have legal access to medical marijuana. Now, more than 20 years later, Anna's warmth and dedication remain unmistakeable and incredibly appealing. Our podcast team met up with Anna in Long Beach, where she had just been honored by the Brownie Mary Democrats of California, and discussed Prop 215 and why and how she did what she did.
In this 1st episode of High Y'All, a podcast focusing mainly on the world of legal cannabis, attorney Chris Hickok, a specialist in this field, discusses such matters as the role of attorneys, regulatory processes and challenges, and taxation and 280E.
