On July 2, 2020, the Department of Cannabis Regulation (DCR) sent a communication entitled, "Phase 2 Applicants who Fail to Pass a Pre-Licensing Inspection by July 3, 2020 Will Not Have Their Application’s Immediately Abandoned" which advised that Phase 2 Applicants who fail to pass a pre-licensing inspection by July 3, 2020 will: (1) lose their local authorization provided under Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) Section 104.08(a) as of July 4, 2020, and by virtue of losing this local authorization, shall lose the availability of limited immunity by operation of law under LAMC Section 104.08(c); and (2) have their Application abandoned as of July 20, 2020, unless, by no later than July 19, 2020, the Applicant either: (a) registered a notice of intent to

relocate; or (b) submitted a request to schedule an initial or follow-up pre-licensing inspection. DCR’s records reflect that you did not take either of these required actions.

Your Application (LA-C-18-000XXX-APP) has therefore been deemed abandoned. (LAMC § 104.08(f).)

This matter is final and not reviewable by an administrative appeal. Please be advised that any and all persons who engage in unlicensed Commercial Cannabis Activity are subject to an enforcement action and/or criminal penalties for unlicensed Commercial Cannabis Activity. (LAMC § 104.15.) You may not assert limited immunity as an affirmative defense to any violation of law associated with a Phase 2 Applicant or its Business Premises.
