    Answered . The most reliable source for on-going issues pertaining to safe med mj practices is California NORML, a non-profit, membership organization and the only state organization devoted specifically to marijuana reform. CA NORML publishes a newsletter, lobbies lawmakers, sponsors events, offers legal, educational, and consumer health advice, and sponsors scientific research.

    From the CA NORML website:

    SB420 bars marijuana smoking in no smoking zones, within 1000 feet of a school or youth center except in private residences; on school buses, in a motor vehicle that is being operated, or while operating a boat. Patients are advised to be discreet or consume oral preparations in public."
