Medical Cannabis Regulation in Los Angeles

The Citizen Task Force works to ensure cannabis regulations that create safe neighborhoods & a healthy economy for all Los Angeles


With the passing of the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) on January 1, 2016, the framework for a robustly regulated medical cannabis industry was born in California. MMRSA ensures license types and opportunities for businesses of all sizes to operate legally with regulations and oversight.

Unfortunately, Los Angeles, which is a large portion of that market, is chaotically unprepared for the changes and opportunities this presents. The mission of our task force is to create real reform in the Los Angeles medical cannabis market by promoting evidence based regulation, compliance with state law, fairness in the market, and legitimacy in the eyes of Angelenos.

Our state has already done the heavy lifting. Now it’s time for Los Angeles to lead.
