The next round of marijuana business licensing in Los Angeles will begin Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. PT, the city’s Department of Cannabis Regulation announced Monday.
Licenses available through the upcoming round will be for delivery companies, distributors, nonvolatile manufacturers and testing labs.
But the other three sectors are wide open for any entrepreneur wishing to apply.
L.A.’s marijuana licensing has been rife with delays, lawsuits and systemic problems that have put the program far behind schedule.
But the upcoming licensing window should be a relief for many who have been waiting for months, if not years, to apply for marijuana business permits.
