No matter if the measure will turn out to be law remains unclear. But, if effective, it could prove to be a important blow to cannabis retailers and vaporizer providers in the world’s biggest MJ industry – and could spur other municipalities to stick to suit.
The measure, introduced Wednesday by Council Member Paul Krekorian, calls for the council to ask the city lawyer to draft an ordinance that would “prohibit the sale of all cannabis goods and related accessories employed for vaping” inside L.A. for 1 year.
The ordinance would be automatically renewed annually till the council determines that MJ vaping goods are “safe for customer use.”“I am in search of to halt cannabis vaping till it is confirmed secure,” Krekorian mentioned in a press release, and added that he expects the council to vote on the motion “soon.”
The proposal also calls for the city’s Division of Cannabis Regulation (DCR) to challenge a report on testing lab activities in each the city and from across the state “as they relate to cannabis solution security and public overall health.”
