Over the next two months, more than 1,600 eligible applicants will compete for 100 new retail permits from the City of Los Angeles. This might sound like reality show material, but the competition is serious.
- L.A.’s third phase of retail licensing started Tuesday morning and remains open until September 17 at 10 a.m.
- Eligible applicants—all of whom qualify for the city’s social equity program—will get priority in having their applications processed. L.A.’s Department of Cannabis Regulation verified more than 1,600 applicants through July.
- The Assembly has passed “Jo Jo’s Act,” a bill that would permit MED in schools. What’s left is for Gov. Newsom to do what Gov. Brown would not and sign the bill.
