Today is a historical day for #maryjane lovers, because now they can indulge in peace thanks to a few new rules approved today! The Los Angeles City Council voted to license recreational marijuana cultivation and sales beginning at the top of the year. Medical marijuana use has been legal for over 20 years.
According to #Time, regulations in L.A. forbid weed business from setting up in residential neighborhoods and there are strict regulations on how these businesses can grow and sell their tree in this new marketplace. Buffer zones will also be placed around public parks, schools and libraries.
Marijuana use is still illegal in the eyes of the Feds, however, due to there being hundreds of illegal marijuana dispensaries and growers in Los Angeles, the city is hoping to impose order after today’s vote.
Sooo, who’s moving to L.A.?!
