Reveal found that migrant workers, known as trimmigrants, are particularly vulnerable to abuse.
The bill is currently before the Assembly Committee on Business and Professions.
The state course, available online, covers workers rights and standards in the workplace, including on violence, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and health and safety hazards. Its an education that many in the industry say growers and workers desperately need.
Not much has changed. The standards are crappy. We need to have some basic OSHA (occupational safety and health) training, like in any business, said Michelle Hood, director of the Redwood Womens Foundation, which hosts workshops on worker safety. Having someone trained to train other people is quality control. Youve got to have it.
Since Californians voted to legalize recreational marijuana, Hood said she hasnt seen many changes in workplace safety and standards. Growers generally lack awareness of their requirements under the law, the result of years spent operating underground.
You havent been able to go down to the Small Business Administration to find out: How am I supposed to educate my employees? How am I supposed to keep them safe? said Brandie Wilson, a human rights commissioner in Humboldt County. There hasnt been a space where you can freely ask those questions about how to operate a legitimate business.
In addition to experiencing sexual harassment and abuse, many trimmers drink and do drugs on the job, prepare and eat food where they work, and regularly experience health and safety issues, from getting resin in their eyes to accidentally stabbing themselves or others with trimming scissors.
Regulators and lawmakers are in the process of forming licensing standards and regulations over the marijuana industry. The state is expected to begin issuing licenses to cultivators in January, and many growers are making plans to move into the mainstream.
Wilson said she expects the bill, if enacted, to help those growers who are working toward legitimacy. But most worker abuses, she said, are not happening on legal marijuana farms.
It is still the people in the shadows, because in the shadows, we have a culture of silence.

"They want this indigenous experience. We clarify with families and locals the misconceptions about working in the tourism industry. We explain the strategy and potential opportunities." With Dubais goal of attracting 20 million tourists a year by 2020, there is a need for manpower. Since January, Dubai Tourism has run English courses as part of its nationalisation programme to attract school leavers and graduates. "We are educating families to understand the career opportunities for growth among locals," Mr Petrillose said. Once open, the college will undergo accreditation from Dubais education regulator, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority. The appeal of cheaper courses, a quick route into employment and strong links to the industry, should make the college appealing to students of all nationalities, Mr Bin Hadher said. A six-month introduction to tourism foundation course costs Dh16,000, while diplomas can cost up to Dh60,000 a year. Mr Bin Hadher said they were keen to see companies invest in their personnel. "Dubai Way, the name of the short courses, is being rolled out across the industry and we are encouraging employers to enrol their employees to take the online course.
