California Apartment Association Targets Medical Marijuana Users
Criminalization of Cannabis Use Continues As State Eyes Legalization
The California Apartment Association (CAA) has placed medical marijuana users in its crosshairs, including recreational marijuana users if voters approve marijuana for legalization in November.
