With a census-estimated 2015 population of 3,971,883,[10] it is the second-most populous city in the United States (after New York City) and the most populous city in California. Located in a large coastal basin surrounded on three sides by mountains reaching up to and over 10,000 feet (3,000 m), Los Angeles covers an area of about 469 square miles (1,210 km2).[7] The city is also the seat of Los Angeles County, the most populated county in the country. Los Angeles is the center of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, and is part of the larger designated Los Angeles-Long Beach combined statistical area (CSA), the second most populous in the nation with a 2015 estimated population of 18.7 million.

The City intends to adopt a comprehensive regulatory process and structure for all cannabis related activity by September 30, 2017. Prior to the creation of a comprehensive regulatory process and structure for cultivation, processing, distribution, sale, and other cannabis related activity, including enforcement of any licensing and related oversight (i.e., the “commercialization” of cannabis), the Council shall convene public hearings in the City involving all stakeholders in the process of developing the rules, regulations and ordinances necessary to regulate the safe commercialization of cannabis, including, but not limited to, Neighborhood Councils, police officers, school officials, probation officers, civic and service organizations, chambers of commerce, cannabis related industries and others.
