The Think and Grow Lab Get Ready for Day 1 RETAIL & DELIVERY Work Session is designed to help cannabis entrepreneurs detail the answers for the City of Los Angeles Cannabis Application questions and to prepare the required documents and forms.  The City of Los Angeles application will be available online and each application will be time stamped for processing.

We are strategically focusing on RETAIL & DELIVERY COMMERCIAL CANNABIS applications only this month because available retail sites will be limited due to the required 800 foot buffer from sensitive uses and other retail sites.
