The Cannabis Minority Business Alliance sent a letter to City Attorney Mike Feuer over L.A.’s inability to quell illicit weed sales. The C.M.A. is demanding immediate action, even threatening the city with a lawsuit.
“Unlicensed shops have been a public nuisance and pose a critical public-safety issue to the residents of South Los Angeles,” the letter says.

- “[A] class action lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles Attorney’s Office” on behalf of licensed dispensary operators, social equity license applicants and local community leaders, CMA leaders said, is in the offing should enforcement not improve.

- In other track-and-erase news, as of now Gov. Newsom has not yet deployed the National Guard to eradicate illicit farms in Northern California. Undoubtedly, more than a few law-abiding Californians read that previous line and began contemplating a lawsuit. And as you read this sentence, a small handful began taking copius notes.
