LA Amendments PCN Original 6

On July 30, the Los Angeles Department of Cannabis Regulation presented a report to the City’s Cannabis Regulation Commission, outlining the next step in the City’s cannabis licensing program and some of the changes to the cannabis licensing laws that were passed by the City Council and signed by Eric Garcetti last month. The slides from the presentation can be viewed here:  VIEW SLIDES.  Among various other issues, the slides explain that due to changes made in the recent amendments, the Community Plan Areas now deemed to be in “undue concentration,” where people can apply through a special “Public Convenience or Necessity” process, are now back to the original six areas, and do not currently include Boyle Heights, West LA, Hollywood, or North Hollywood.  This means that anyone hoping to open a licensed dispensary in one of these areas will need top apply via the Phase 3, Round 2 lottery, or wait for the regions to reach undue concentration.  Applicants will be able to apply now via the PCN process for storefront licenses in the areas of Central City, Central City North, Harbor Gateway, Sherman Oaks/Studio City, Sun Valley/La Tuna Canyon, and Venice.
