While rules regarding cannabis businesses in Los Angeles are still taking shape, fees for the permit application process appear set. The Rules, Elections, and Intergovernmental Relations Committee chair, in addition voting for the Los Angeles City Council to approve the draft regulations, also recommended that it adopt the Supplemental Report on Cannabis business fees submitted by the City Administrative Officer. The report lays out the costs associated with processing applications including a $9,360 Cannabis Business Application Fee, a $8,059 Cannabis Business Plan Review Fee, and a $3,747 Cannabis Business Tax Audit Fee (these amounts include the proposed 'systems fee'). Other fees, such as the Cannabis Business Security Inspection fee are TBT so be sure to check back within the coming weeks as the Los Angeles City Council votes on this and other matters related to cannabis-related licensing and permitting.
