L.A. Cannabis Commission Set To Clarify PCN Process

Posted by Olivia Hartman on July 29, 2020

On Thursday, July 30th, at 2:00 pm, the Los Angeles Cannabis Regulation Commission

Department of Cannabis Regulation will be conducting a Special Meeting via Teleconference to continue the discussion on L.A. cannabis licensing updates. At the last City Council meeting, changes were made to the ordinance relating to the retail licensing process, the Social Equity Program, and moving licenses around the City. The details of those changes were reported on by our staff - check them out here. Some of the decisions that were made in the last meeting were found to be confusing by Los Angeles civilians - specifically in regards to the details of the revised Social Equity Program and Round 2 Licensing process, who will be able to participate in the Round 2 lottery, and how and when Round 1 applicants who secured properties in anticipation of a license will be able to get licensed. Some of these issues may be clarified after the meeting on Thursday.
