Marijuana Delivery Could Live or Die by Proposition M
LA Weekly’s coverage of Proposition M, a measure to allow the City of Los Angeles to issue business licenses to retail marijuana products, included a quote from Englander Knabe & Allen founding partner Harvey Englander:
The United Cannabis Business Alliance, which endorsed Proposition M, is in favor only of direct delivery from brick-and-mortar stores.
“Our position has always been that delivery should be restricted to brick-and-mortar shops, if there’s going to be delivery at all,” says Harvey Englander of government-relations consulting firm Englander Knabe & Allen, which represents UCBA.
Englander says he wonders how delivery pot will be taxed if third-party services are legalized. Those services sometimes deliver their own product. City prosecutors had made a similar argument against Speed Weed.
