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 on June 8, 2017. The City Council is currently 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 proposed ordinance has been assigned a City Planning case number of CPC-2017-2260-CA. Please reference this number when corresponding with the Department regarding this case.

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.

To find all relevant documents including the Hearing Notice; a Questions & Answers document providing additional information; the text of the proposed Ordinance; and the Ordinance Supplement, along with a series of maps illustrating the approximate locations where commercial cannabis activity would be eligible to assert limited immunity under the proposed regulations, please see: http://planning.lacity.org under “Ordinances” and “Proposed Ordinances”
