May 23, 2022Media Mention

Cannabis attorney Michelle Mabugat discussed Los Angeles' revised marijuana ordinance in a recent MJBizDaily article. Modifications to the cannabis laws will affect thousands of business in the city. Experts suggest the changes will allow cannabis business owners more ease when dealing with license applications and social equity.


Michelle Mabugat, counsel at L.A.-based law firm Greenberg Glusker, said it wasn’t uncommon for the DCR to take a year or longer to process business relocation requests and ownership changes filed by her clients.

“Those days are hopefully now over,” said Mabugat, who represents entrepreneurs and companies throughout L.A.’s marijuana supply chain.
