Los Angeles & California Laws
In 2013, 63% of Los Angeles voters approved Proposition D, which granted a limited immunity to 135 medical marijuana dispensaries. Since the passage of Proposition D, the number of illegal marijuana operations has increased to what some estimate to be over 1,000 shops.
The Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act, which was signed by Governor Brown in late 2015 creates comprehensive oversight for the industry including the cultivation, distribution and sale of marijuana products throughout California.
