California Governor Gavin Newsom announced on March 24th that he has appointed Rob Bonta, MP, who is particularly concerned with cannabis laws, as the next attorney general.

Congregation, 48, Bonta, would be instrumental in helping enforce cannabis laws in California. If this were confirmed, he would be the first Filipino American to hold the highest law enforcement role in the state.

“More than ever, we need government leaders and law enforcement leaders who build bridges with other communities that have been persecuted, persecuted and targeted,” said Bonta said.

If confirmed, Bonta would replace former Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who was recently reaffirmed as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the Biden Administration – an important promotion as the Attorney General’s seat can lead to senior positions.

Congregation member, Bonta, has been busy drafting laws related to cannabis, such as a law to automatically overturn convictions for cannabis. Just last February, Congregation member Bonta introduced Called legislation Draft Law No. 2355This would prohibit employers from discriminating against workers based on their work as a medical cannabis patient or a patient’s positive drug test for cannabis. The legislature was also instrumental in passing by Bill No. 1793and provides a clear path to reduce or eliminate beliefs in cannabis.

Congregation Member Bonta’s other pieces of legislation include efforts to close private prisons and end the bail system. Lawmakers said it supports efforts to set up a 24/7 hate crime hotline in the attorney general’s office – something that has received new attention after the nail salon shootings in Atlanta, Georgia. California has seen its own share of Nail salon shoot Sprees.

The new administration will look very different. Over 100 lawsuits were filed against his administration during Becerra’s tenure during the Trump administration. Confirmation from Congregation member Bonta is awaited due to the Democratic-led California law.
