City Attorney's Office Answers Studio City Concerns about Medical Marijuana Sites

City Attorney Mike Feuer's office answered a host of questions by the Studio City Neighborhood Council concerning the plethora of medical marijuana businesses in their area following a large committee meeting held a few weeks ago.

Land Use Committee chairman Lisa Sarkin said a lot of the answers are now online for neighborhoods all over Los Angeles.

A total of 54 stakeholders attended the last Land Use Committee meeting that involved the medical marijuana discussions, including many of the shop owners themselves.

Sarkin let's Studio City Patch know, "Please be advised that we are having a joint meeting with the Land Use Committee and Public Safety Committees on Thursday, October 10, 2013,7:00 PM at the CBS Studio Center 4024 Radford Ave. MPR 9. I hope to see you there."

When the city passed Prop D in May, the only medical marijuana businesses allowed were ones that were registered with the city in 2007 and met certain requirements.

In Studio City, only five such businesses met that requirement. On top of that, the businesses cannot be within 600 feet of each other (two of them are), and cannot be within 1,000 feet from a school (one of them is). They would have 180 days to conform or relocate, said Nicole Carcel, Deputy for Community Engagement and Outreach for the City Attorney’s office.

180 days from when prop D became law so that leaves about a little less then 90 days left for Buds & Roses etc....to relocate not 180 days from whenever they feel like it. The City needs to make sure those 5 shops comply with this and not give in to them or immunize them from the original time constraint. Enforce prop D and no excuses!

Is there any penalty assessed to landlords who have knowingly rented to an illegal business? It seems to me that's the way to stop this proliferation. Otherwise this process will start up all over again with shops cropping up in new locations. xnewfaces brings up an excellent point, the 180 day time frame should not rely on the city's notification but from June 20th. Those other 10 should be closed tomorrow, they are obviously in violation.
