AB 730, as introduced, Quirk. Controlled substances: transport.
Existing law categorizes controlled substances into 5 schedules and restrictions on those contained in Schedule I. Existing law, subject to exceptions, makes it an offense to, among other things, transport marijuana, phencyclidine, as specified, and mushrooms containing certain controlled substances, as provided.
This bill would instead define “transport” for those purposes to mean to transport for sale.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.
