Just to catch you up: Pasadena is a city inside of the County of Los Angeles. Because of state law, Pasadena’s laws superede that of the county. And that means the “People’s Initiative to Preserve the Existing Operation of Non-Offending Commercial Cannabis Businesses” will appear on the Pasadena ballot in March.
- The initiative would legalize unlicensed, illegal Pasadena canabis dispensaries, as long as no convictions are associated with the enterprise.
- If passed, the initiative would nullify an ordinance from last year which bars cannabusiness to operate within 600 feet of schools, parks, residential areas and churches. The iniative also calls for removing the cap on pot operations the city — pop. 143,000 — which is presently six.
