SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) — Several new California laws will go into effect on Monday.
From buying ammunition to marijuana-related convictions, the new laws will change several things in the Golden State.
Here’s a look at four of laws that could directly impact you:
Proposition 63 — Ammunition Purchases
Passed by voters in 2016, beginning July 1, 2019, ammunition dealers will be required to check with the Department of Justice at the time of purchase that individuals seeking to buy ammunition are not prohibited persons.
Requires the release of recordings from body-worn cameras within 45 days of an incident, including if officers fired shots or if a use-of-force causes death or great bodily harm. Law goes into effect July 1, 2019.
AB 1793 — Cannabis Convictions: Resentencing
The California Department of Justice will need to review all marijuana convictions that would be reduced or expunged due to voters approving marijuana for recreational use in 2016. The deadline is July 1, 2019.
SB 1448 — Doctor Probation Disclosure
Starting July 1, doctors will have to inform patients if they are on probation before they can offer treatment. The law applies to physicians, surgeons, podiatrists, acupuncturists, chiropractors and osteopathic and naturopathic doctors.
