The Los Angeles commission that oversees cannabis regulation sophisticated a proposal to the City Council Thursday that requests the creation of a law enabling city officials to padlock, barricade or fence in a home exactly where marijuana is sold illegally with no a license.
The request came from Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson, which was deliberated by the city’s Cannabis Regulation Commission, and it asks the city to draft the enforcement measures.
“Unlicensed cannabis enterprises violate city and state laws,” Harris-Dawson’s motion study. “Despite elevated law enforcement efforts to shut down unlicensed cannabis enterprises, they continue to open for small business and thereby jeopardize public security and buyer well being, along with creating it tougher for licensed and regulated enterprises to survive the competitive cannabis marketplace.”
Thursday’s deliberation was about the initiating new enforcement measures that, if passed by the City Council, would later be discussed in detail.
