In close cooperation with the County Board of Supervisors and other County departments, the Office of Cannabis Management convened an Advisory Working Group to help guide the development of cannabis regulations for the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The group’s membership represented major stakeholders, including community members, business owners, advocacy groups, public health experts and cannabis industry participants, all of whom contributed their time on a volunteer basis.

The Advisory Working Group met eight times during the summer of 2017. Links to materials for each of these meetings can be found below.
Through a consensus-based decision-making process, members of the Advisory Working Group developed a series of recommendations on topics including youth access and exposure, public health and safety, rules for cannabis businesses, taxation and economic development, and equity. The Office of Cannabis Management is currently preparing a report of the Advisory Working Group’s meetings and recommendations. Once compete, the report will be available to the public on the Office of Cannabis Management’s website.
