SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Oakland's new medical marijuana rules include an equity program that is drawing debate.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the city is reserving half of its permits for people who meet one or more criteria, like incarceration for pot-related crimes in the last 10 years.
Supporters say the program helps make reparations for drug policies that disproportionately impact African Americans and Latinos.
Industry leaders were generally supportive, but warned the rules could stifle growth.
Others warned equity permit rules could block some of the people they were intended to help.
Oakland council members unanimously approved the rules Tuesday.
Councilman Dan Kalb said he and other officials will work on clarifying the language.
