City Controller Ron Galperin just released a map of medical marijuana dispensaries in the City of Los Angeles. The map shows the placement and status of the present medical marijuana dispensaries.

In January 2018 both preexisting medical marijuana and recreational use marijuana will be allowed to operate but they will have to obtain new local permits. Also home delivery will be allowed.

There is a proposed 10 percent tax on recreational use marijuana and a 5 percent tax on medical.

The new rules will put strict limits on a business’s operating hours and appearance, require intense security and detailed employee and sales records to name a few.

The City will have tools to enforce the regulations, such as authorizing fines, criminal penalties or loss of power and water service for businesses operating without a license or ignoring city rules.
