Dennis Peron’s vision of legalization will be complete only when the legal cannabis marketplace works for everyone without narcs and illicit alternative marketplaces. This effort continues in the California State Legislature and in the news media and in industry forums across the state.
Right now, we are working to support Senator Scott Wiener’s Senate Bill 34, the Dennis Peron and Brownie Mary Act. This crucial legislation is needed to allow for the tax free compassionate distribution of cannabis under California’s new legal system of rules and regulations. This entire concept ended in January of 2019 when Proposition 64’s new rules kicked in.
Here are 3 ways you can help in California:
1. Contribute money to the Dennis Peron Political Action Committee. Your donation to the Dennis Peron PAC enables us to support members of the state legislature who support our political goals and to promote public awareness of SB 34, the Dennis Peron & Brownie Mary Act, as well as other political issues.

2. Write a letter in support of Senator Scott Wiener’s SB 34. We need to contact our rep’s in the state legislature as well as Governor Newsom to urge them to pass SB 34, the Dennis Peron and Brownie Mary Act. We also need to write “letters to the editor” and get them into our local newspapers. Here is one example that we wrote and sent to the state legislature.
3.Write California Governor Gavin Newsom asking him to sign SB 34, the Dennis Peron and Brownie Mary Act of 2019.

A big Thank You to all who came to our benefit party on April 27, 2019 in Oakland. It was great to meet the folks from Sweet Leaf Collective and many others working to pass SB 34, the Dennis Peron & Brownie Mary Act. (Invitation is below.)
Here’s how you can help at the Federal Level:
Support the Marijuana Freedom and Opportunity Act
May 9, 2019: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Majority Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries introduced the Marijuana Freedom and Opportunity Act, to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and to provide funding for the expungement of criminal records for those with past marijuana convictions.
According to national polling data compiled by the Center for American Progress 68% of registered voters “support the legalization of marijuana,” and 73% support expunging the records of those previously convicted of marijuana-related offenses. The is the highest level of support for legalization ever reported in a nationwide, scientific poll.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and new House lead sponsor Representative Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08) announce the reintroduction of the Marijuana Freedom and Opportunity Act, legislation that would remove cannabis from the list of scheduled substances under the Controlled Substances Act, effectively implementing decriminalization at the federal level. Schumer first introduced this legislation last year.
