Prop 64 Program Background

In November of 2016, voters approved Proposition 64, the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA). AUMA legalized the recreational use of marijuana in California for individuals 21 years of age and older. Proposition 64, in pertinent part, provides that a portion of the tax revenue from the cultivation and retail sale of cannabis or cannabis products will be appropriated (per Revenue and Taxation Code (RTC), Section 34019, subd. (f)(3)(C)):

To the Board of State and Community Corrections for making grants to local governments to assist with law enforcement, fire protection, or other local programs addressing public health and safety associated with the implementation of the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act. The board shall not make any grants to local governments that ban both indoor and outdoor commercial cannabis cultivation, or ban retail sale of cannabis or cannabis products pursuant to Section 26200 of the Business and Professions Code or as otherwise provided by law.
