Dear City Residents,
Just wanted to reach out once again on the subject of Cannabis in the City of Los Angeles and invite you to upcoming Rules Committee meetings over the next few weeks. I also anticipate that draft regulations on a variety of the subjects you care about (e.g. land use, sensitive use, licensing process, operational requirements, NC and community input, etc.) will be released sometime in June for a 60-day public comment period prior to any further action.
Tues. June 6th @ 6pm - Council Chambers, City Hall - Rules Committee meeting and panel discussion on the topics of testing laboratories and public health
I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming meetings and appreciate your ongoing input on this issue.
