Measure C Vote: How will the measure affect you and your family?

Endorsement: Yes on L.A. County Measure C for regulated cannabis sales, which requires the approval of the county board of supervisors.


L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey – On her Facebook page: “If you want to smoke legal weed, now’s the time! We know that a vote will change the world, and we’re proud to be a part of it.”

Attorney General Xavier Becerra – In his official statement released in support of Measure C, Becerra wrote: “I look forward to working with the community to pass Measure C in the Nov. 2018 election.”


Cities – L.A. County was the last major city to vote down the medical marijuana law back in 2006. Now the whole county, along with the rest of California, is in the cross-hairs of this industry.

Pot shop owners – The first day there will be an initiative to create the public safety commission, which will create an enforcement arm and could be used to stifle any dispensaries.

Why it matters:

If voters OK the initiative, the measure is expected to take effect by 2025. Some believe that by 2020, there is a 60-90% chance that cannabis will be legal for commercial sales, based on a 2017 report on the cost and benefits of legalization by the Rhodium Group.

According to the group, the first licensed pot shop would open in San Francisco in 2019, and other city and county locations would follow in 2020. The group predicted that sales could exceed $10 billion per year by 2022.

Cannabis-related jobs could be in the hundreds of thousands – the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts there will be approximately 1.3 million cannabis-related jobs by 2022.

While California’s economy has seen a resurgence from the recession, jobs for those in the cannabis industry are expected to increase 10-fold from 2018 to 2020.
