On November 16, 2017, the State of California and the City of Los Angeles announced regulations and ordinances to regulate cannabis in their respective jurisdictions. California’s three cannabis licensing authorities announced proposed emergency licensing regulations for medicinal and adult-use commercial cannabis businesses. The new regulations for each licensing authority reflect the laws contained within the regulatory system under California’s Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), which was signed into law by the Governor on June 27, 2017. MAUCRSA creates one regulatory system for medicinal and adult-use cannabis business operations in California. The City ordinances provide guidelines for procurement of licenses at the City level in furtherance of State law requiring city approval to obtain a California license.
