On Monday, West Hollywood City Council took a big step forward with its city’s pot laws.

The new ordinance would grant up to eight first time licenses for each type of marijuana business operation, comprising recreational stores, medical dispensaries, edible lounges, smoking and vaping lounges and local delivery services.

Meanwhile, Pasadena further tightened its codes against recreational marijuana use on Monday night as well.

AirTalk rounds up the latest on California pot regulations. California cities have less than two months to meet the Jan. 1, 2018 deadline for approving laws to govern recreational marijuana businesses.
