In November 2016, the voters approved Proposition 64, which legalized recreational cannabis (marijuana) in California.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has directed County departments to develop cannabis regulations for the County’s unincorporated areas. The Los Angeles County Office of Cannabis Management is convening 18 listening sessions throughout the County to hear suggestions and concerns from unincorporated communities on such issues as: Where can commercial cannabis businesses locate? What rules should these businesses follow? What strategies can help prevent youth from consuming cannabis? What strategies can enhance public safety?
These sessions are open to everyone. They will be conducted in a workshop style, and will be facilitated to encourage honest and open dialogue about this important issue. Translation services will be available.
Community feedback will guide the development of cannabis regulations for unincorporated areas, so make your voice heard by attending one or more listening sessions.
