Social Equity in Cannabis Businesses
September 30, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Please join the City of Los Angeles and speakers Council President Herb Wesson and Executive Director Cat Packer for a public workshop focused on Social Equity and Commercial Cannabis Activity Regulation on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 1:00pm-4:00pm, at the Watts Labor Community Action Committee –“Phoenix Hall” in Los Angeles.
This event is free and light refreshments will be provided.
As the City of Los Angeles embarks on a new era of cannabis policy, it is critical that those communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs are engaged in the development and implementation of new law.
The upcoming public workshop will be an opportunity to learn about recent and upcoming changes in law regarding commercial cannabis activity, including the City’s newly established Department of Cannabis Regulation and the City’s forthcoming Social Equity Program.
In order to make sure that the City of Los Angeles does this right – to ensure that new cannabis policies, legitimate business opportunities and job opportunities within the emerging cannabis industry are both responsible and equitable — we need to hear from you!
Please plan to attend and share this invite with others.
