CALIFORNIA: The Green Earth Farmacie, leading cannabis dispensary specialists, announced they are now open for adult use recreational customers. The Green Earth Farmacie is one of the first dispensaries in Los Angeles to officially open their doors to the general public. To participate, customers must be adults 21 years and over, with a valid ID to verify legal age.
“This is an exciting time for us, and quite frankly, it’s exciting for the people of L.A.,” said Mo Anouti, Founder and CEO. “I feel like this has been a long time coming and I can’t wait to provide our high-quality cannabis to people who have otherwise had their access restricted for far too many years.”
The announcement comes on the heels of the implementation of Proposition 64, a California State initiative passed in 2016 that saw voters legalize the sale of recreational marijuana used by adults. The measure also calls for taxation on the cultivation and retail sale of cannabis. Revenue generated from these taxes are set to go to drug research and treatment, youth programs, and various health and safety grants.
“It’s the dawning of a new era for Californians, and for Angelinos in particular,” continued Mr. Anouti. “We’re still going to continue proudly serving our medical cannabis patients, but we are happy that we now have the opportunity to provide the same great service and high-quality cannabis options to the public, too.”
