Cannabis business owners, patients, activists, workers and supporters will rally at LA City Hall to demand nine important changes to draft proposed requirements designed to regulate LA’s cannabis industry. The rally will be led by LA’s largest cannabis advocacy coalition: The United Food and Commercial Workers Local 770  (UFCW), United Cannabis Business Association (UCBA) and the Los Angeles Cannabis Task Force (LACTF).

Following the rally, participants will testify at the City Council’s Rules, Elections, and Intergovernmental Relations Committee Meeting.
WHO: UFCW, UCBA and LACTF members

WHAT: Rally to Support Responsible Cannabis Regulation in the City of Los Angeles

WHEN: TODAYTuesday August 15,2017, 3 PM

WHERE: LA City Hall, Spring Street Steps

WHY: 80% of LA voters voted Yes on Measure M, authorizing a licensing, taxation and regulatory structure for cannabis businesses. Yet under the draft proposed requirements, no cannabis business licenses will be issued. Without important changes, the proposed requirements will exacerbate public safety problems, perpetuate the failed war on drugs, and undermine the policy’s goal of promoting social equity within the industry.

VISUALS & INTERVIEWS: Hundreds of cannabis supporters with signs and t-shirts. Interviews with leadership and members will be held throughout the day.
