How L.A. is Learning to Live with Marijuana (NON-MEMBERS)

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.  YOU MAY REGISTER AT THE DOOR.

For the past decade, cities in Los Angeles county and around the state have existed in an unclear haze when it comes to marijuana. The regulation of dispensaries, commercial farms, and other facilities has been haphazard and halting. Now, with the passage of Proposition 64, the grey market for cannabis is turning green. 

Cities now face a bewildering array of options, amid Prop. 64's 62 pages of regulations. They can take a family-friendly approach with outright probation. Or they can try to lure tourists and tax dollars by becoming the Amsterdam of the West Coast. WUF will discuss what legalized marijuana may mean for the L.A. area. We will look at land use regulations, legal considerations, growers' and sellers' concerns, and strategies that cities are taking to take advantage of -- or forego -- the green economy.
