Nelson Hardiman attorney, Aaron C. Lachant, discusses what cannabis businesses must do before the looming January 1, 2018 California legalization date on ABC7 News. Specifically, local businesses must get permitted in order to get state licenses by the new year. To do so, however, local regulations must be finalized and released to the public. Aaron also discusses how West Hollywood has taken a leadership role in cannabis legalization which is likely to lead to increased tourism.
