City Council opened a 60 day public comment period June 8 on proposed ordinances regulating production and sale of commercial cannabis. Now is your chance to review the proposals and speak up about the production and sale of cannabis in your neighborhood.

Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr. was joined by Councilmembers Bob Blumenfield, Paul Koretz and Nury Martinez in releasing the city’s draft regulations governing commercial cannabis activity. The City Council is began on June 8, 2017 conducting a 60 day public comment period of the proposed requirements.

The Department of City Planning has prepared the proposed Commercial Cannabis Location Restriction Ordinance, which would establish location restrictions and a limited immunity from enforcement of specified City prohibitions relating to commercial cannabis activity. In addition, the Department has prepared an ordinance supplement with a land use review process option, which the City Council may incorporate at its discretion.

The Department will conduct a public hearing to gather input on the proposed ordinance. This hearing has been scheduled for Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in Los Angeles City Hall, Room 1010. All interested persons are invited to attend.
