For those that are trying to get a license, to sell recreational marijuana have to wait till mid-January, according to L.A. officials.
Yes, the sales of marijuana are already legal, but the eager weed entrepreneurs will have to wait to apply for a license til Jan 3. It might take up to mid-Jan for the temporary licenses to be approved for adults of the age of 21 an over to legally buy.The Los Angeles Department expects a load of license applications waiting to be approved. I mean you cant avoid entrepreneurs to miss out on this great opportunity. The revenue in one year has projected a minimum of $20,000 million (talk about the American Dream).
“Los Angeles has been described as one of the largest cannabis markets in the world”, said Cat Parker, director of cannabis regulation. There are about 200 businesses that are lining up in Los Angeles alone to get approved in January.
She states that the new regulations will have harsher punishments if rules are broken. Stores need to be responsible when it comes to taking care of their business regulations or else they will be subject to administrative actions by the department, that includes their license removal.The stores that are operating with no license to sell will be hammered with a 20,000 fine each day. In addition, cutting off their lights and utilities off.
There are many questions about the regulations now that the use of recreational marijuana is legal. There is lots of concern of where people can smoke pot, and unwanted marijuana exposure. The rules will stay the same, the pot smoking in public will not be allowed.
Everyone wants to get in on the action, but if being responsible has to wait then that is what Los Angeles is going to do. They need to make sure all rules and regulations are set before the sale of recreational marijuana starts this month. Other cities like Santa Ana opened up 17 stores that are licensed to sell recreational marijuana.
