With hundreds of illegal marijuana shops continuing to operate in the city, the Los Angeles Cannabis Regulation Commission unanimously threw its support Thursday behind a number of aggressive methods to crack down on the dispensaries, including the formation of a special task force and shutting off the businesses’ utilities.
“I’m frustrated, as many of you are,” Commission President Robert Ahn said. “I would have to say of all of the cannabis questions that I get or inquiries, at the top of the list is enforcement, and it’s really the one issue that, whether you are in the industry, part of the industry or in the community, (is) something that everyone agrees on. It’s just common sense. If you create laws, what good are the laws if they cannot be enforced?”
