State Law vs. Federal Law - Is the "Grass" Greener?

Many manufactured home communities are located in states that have legalized, decriminalized, or provided for the medical use and possession of marijuana. California was the first state to establish a medical marijuana program, enacted by Proposition 215 in 1996 which was followed up by Senate Bill 420 in 2003. In 2010, Senate Bill 1449 was enacted in California and decriminalized the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana from a misdemeanor to a citation, similar to a traffic violation, with a $100 fine and no mandatory court appearance or criminal record. Marijuana has been legalized in Colorado and Washington State and decriminalized or allowed for medical purposes in twenty-five other states and the District of Columbia. However, marijuana remains a Schedule I substance that is illegal under federal law.
