On Monday, July 18 the Coalition for Responsible Permitting announced the launch of a new campaign calling for greater diversity in the Los Angeles Cannabis Marketplace.
“Currently the marketplace in Los Angeles is controlled by relatively few businesses. Under the existing system, only the well positioned and well capitalized can participate in the regulated marketplace. This forces many in the city into the shadows and ensures that low income communities will continue to face disproportionate negative impacts of cannabis commerce.”
The Coalition for Responsible Permitting is a statewide issues PAC controlled by the California Growers Association that works collaboratively with other groups to raise public awareness and advance good cannabis policy in California. The Los Angeles campaign includes:
The California Growers Association is the states leading representative for cannabis growers and businesses.
The California Minority Alliance is a statewide organization based in Los Angeles that supports minority participation and ownership in the emerging cannabis marketplace.
The California Cannabis Delivery Alliance is a statewide network of delivery services working to support regulation for at the state and local level.
