Many voters in 29 states have legalized medical Cannabis across the nation. It is still illegal as a schedule 1 drug in the eyes of the federal government, but in the state of California, many have worked hard to produce ordinances and city measures to decriminalize the business of recreational / medical Cannabis. These new guaranteed laws open a new industry available to cultivate, purchase, manufacture and use within the city of Los Angeles and the state of California. LA City Council members, stakeholders, law enforcement, civic organizations all are working in tandem to make this great city safe for all and including those in business that is slated to bring in over 5 billion dollars in the next 2 years.

Virgil Grant, ‘The KING of LA’

Grant, has also unified the entire southern California cannabis community as co-founder and President of the Southern California Coalition (SCC), the region’s largest most inclusive cannabis industry trade organization. On March 7th, 2017, Grant’s organizations united the City of Los Angeles’ government, communities and cannabis stakeholders together, ushering the landslide passage of LA City Proposition M, which sets new precedents for the world’s largest cannabis market with responsible guidelines, regulations and licensing. Civic municipalities like Los Angeles, have entrusted to Virgil, guidance in drafting their ordinance and regulations with his wide-ranging expert insight and knowledge of the industry.
