MedMen West Hollywood Gets Its Adult-Use Sales License Extended

backBack

February 15, 2019

MedMen West Hollywood was granted a license extension by the West Hollywood City Council this week, allowing the cannabis retailer to stay through at least the end of the year.

The West Hollywood City Council voted to extend the temporary adult-use licenses of MedMen and three other existing cannabis dispensaries until December 31. The current temporary licenses expire March 27. The Council also decided to discuss grandfathering the existing four operators at a later date.

A new process the city adopted last year to issue cannabis business licenses failed to award adult-use retail licenses to the four existing dispensaries, including MedMen West Hollywood. The license under which MedMen operates in West Hollywood was issued nearly a decade ago and has remained in good standing throughout its existence. Since opening under the MedMen brand in 2015, MedMen West Hollywood has also received numerous accolades, including the 2018 Corporate Innovation Award from the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Best of WeHo 2018 Best Cannabis Dispensary as voted by the readers of WeHoVille.com and West Hollywood Magazine.

The store generates more than $4 million in tax revenue annually, and the city’s Tourism Bureau has promoted it as a tourist destination.
