"Prop D strikes a balance between the needs of patients and the desire of neighborhoods to regulate the proliferation of medical marijuana dispensaries. We've gotten great momentum in our effort to aggressively enforce the will of the voters who enacted Proposition D." 

 

- Mike Feuer

Los Angeles City Attorney

Following the explosive growth of medical marijuana dispensaries, Proposition D was passed by Los Angeles voters in May, 2013 for the regulation of medical marijuana dispensaries. Since taking office, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer has shut down more than 800 of the unlawful dispensaries throughout the city.

ON PROPOSITION M (March 28, 2017)

The following is provided for informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing legal advice. You should contact an attorney to obtain advice with respect to any particular issue or problem or to answer any questions you may have regarding Proposition M.

Proposition M is a Los Angeles City ballot measure that was passed by Los Angeles City voters on March 7, 2017. Proposition M affirms the City Council’s power to revise and/or replace Proposition D with new local legislation relating to cannabis and medical cannabis after conducting public hearings. In the meantime, Proposition D remains in place.  Proposition M authorizes criminal penalties, nuisance abatement and increased civil fines in the amount of $20,000 per day and disconnection of utilities for unauthorized cannabis activities, beginning January 1, 2018.  Proposition M also sets new business taxes, effective January 1, 2018, for cannabis and medical cannabis related activity.

Proposition M itself does not set up a new licensing scheme for commercial cannabis activity in the City. Rather, Proposition M provides that the City Council will hold public hearings and enact new ordinances pertaining to cannabis and medical cannabis activity in calendar year 2017 to take effect in 2018. Interested persons should follow City Council and committee agendas for further information.

***The document entitled "Proposition D: Existing Medical Marijuana Businesses Timely Registered Under ICO, TUO and Measure M" has been removed. This list did not confer any legal rights or grant any immunity to a specific MMB. The list was designed to let the public know which MMB's could potentially be immunized from enforcement actions based on their apparent satisfaction of three of the many requirements of Proposition D.  A court - not the city - must determine whether an MMB has met all of Proposition D's requirements. To eliminate any confusion as to the significance of the list, it has been removed.
