long-awaited statewide guidelines for medical marijuana. kpix 5's kiet do is live in san jose a city that struggled for years to figure out how to regulate marijuana. kiet. reporter: good morning. it looks like the haze may be lifting on statewide regulations on medical marijuana. there was a flurry of activity last night with lawmakers as they struck deals on a wide range of bills to try to rein in that industry. first off, they created what's called a bureau of medical marijuana regulation to oversee every aspect of the industry from cultivation to retail distribution. next, cities and counties still have the right to ban medical marijuana businesses. individuals will have the right to grow it themselves. the deal also addresses some of the environmental damage done by outdoor crops that steal water and pollute forests are chemicals. all these measures will be up for a vote today when lawmakers adjourn for the year. also up for a vote the "end of life option" act otherwise known as the "right to die" or assisted suicide. it would allow doctors to
5:01 am
prescribe a lethal dose of drugs for those who are second. the patient must submit two verbal requests 15 days apart and then a written request to a doctor signed in front of two witnesses. there's been emotional debate for years but it took a new urgency when brittany maynard moved from california to oregon to kill herself after she was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 29. she captured the whole experience on video and urged lawmakers to pass legislation. after the assembly vote yesterday, maynard's husband took a moment to reflect. >> i'm keeping my promise to brittney and fulfilling that promise but it certainly is bittersweet. >> reporter: the bill now heads to governor brown's desk. he has not given his position on this issue other than some concerns about the legislative procedures. kiet do, kpix 5. a bizarre chase through the streets of san francisco and the water. this was a head shaker. kpix 5's anne makovec has the bizarre details of a chase,
5:02 am
standoff that began with a traffic stop and ended up in the bay. good morning. reporter: good morning. we cover a lot of police chases and local news. this one was unique. it was slow speed and it was wet. it started after a guy was driving erratically on 280 and then jumped in the water here near the 4th street bridge in san francisco's soma by the china basin ballpark area. watched what happened next. this guy was at first hanging on to a pier trying to hang on to some of the pilings and then poking his head up and down out of a manhole cover. so authorities surrounded that. then when he saw officers were still on his tail, this guy started swimming away from police boats, doing the back stroke. then we see him shimmying up a piling, swinging really like a modern day tarzan. finally he walks to the edge of the old pier and then starts to multitask getting in a quick
