LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL RULES COMMITTEE – OUTREACH ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Dear Colleagues:
As you are probably aware, the City of Los Angeles will put a medical marijuana voter initiative on the March 2017 ballot. This initiative would give the City back the right to legislate on this issue. Currently, Proposition D is the City’s medical marijuana ordinance and until it is replaced by a voter mandate returning the power to regulate to elected officials, the City Council cannot make meaningful changes to Proposition D.
Several Neighborhood Councils have already considered this matter and have let the City know they support its efforts to return the power to regulate medical marijuana to the Los Angeles City Council. We hope you will join them if you haven’t already done so.
The City has done a series of outreach meetings to engage the public on the issue of what they would like to see in a new medical marijuana ordinance. The next meeting will take place this Wednesday, December 7th in Van Nuys. The meeting information is below. Could you remind your members about the meeting? The City seems to be contemplating additional meetings, but this is the last one they’ve announced.
Hope to see you there.
