Partner Aaron Lachant was interviewed by ABC7 regarding Los Angeles’s recent acceptance of license applications from marijuana growers and manufacturers.
From the Article:
Cannabis industry attorney Aaron Lachant said the slow pace of licensing has crimped supplies, leaving a relatively small number of cultivators and manufacturers supplying storefronts across the state.
In Los Angeles, retailers have turned to Northern and Central California to bring in products from licensed operators. Under state law, licensed retailers can only do business with other licensed companies.
Without licensed growers and manufacturers in LA, “the retailers have had to figure out new supply relationships with licensees across the state,” Lachant said.
