California state is one of 29 other national cities with marijuana legal status. Their jurisdiction is legal with either medical or non-medical (recreational) purposes.

In the 1970s, a lot of national states started to decriminalize marijuana for recreational use. Oakland, California, was the first US city to allow licensing of cannabis sales in 2004.

Medical cannabis has been legal in California for more than 20 years now. This Wednesday, the marijuana sellers’ opportunities will be officially expanded.

Cannabis revolution

Due to the law, the residents of LA will be able to conduct cannabis business legally, however, they will be still limited to sell pot on such territories as school, public places like parks and libraries.
