The Los Angeles Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee of the City Council will be holding a special meeting next Monday June 29, 2009 to hear 29 medical marijuana collective hardship exemption applications.

The PLUM Committee has cancelled its regularly scheduled Tuesday (June 30, 2009) meeting in order to devote their time and energy to this matter.

The list of hearings this go round includes at least one pre-ICO collective that relocated due to a DEA landlord letter. Several of the collectives scheduled for hearings are in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles but the vast majority scheduled for hearings this time are on the west side of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.

In Eagle Rock, collectives on Colorado Blvd and Eagle Rock Blvd were selected for hearings this round.

In Hollywood, collectives on Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, Cahuenga Blvd and La Brea Ave have been scheduled for hearings next Monday.

Collectives on Pico Blvd, Olympic Blvd, Venice Blvd, Washington Blvd, Jefferson Blvd, Fairfax Ave and Melrose Ave are among those on the west side that are scheduled while several locations on Ventura Blvd in the west valley will also be receiving notices of hearings.

The city will be mailing a notice to the collectives having a hearing Thursday afternoon.

The hearing will be Monday June 29, 2009 at Los Angeles City Hall, 200 N Spring St in room 260 and the special meeting begins at 8:30 AM and if you are unable to attend you listen live online at

Here is a list of the collectives that are currently scheduled for hearings Monday morning June 29th, but I add that this is a tentative list at this time. The meeting agenda has not been finalized and there is a small possibility that more collectives may be added but more than likely this will be the calendar, listings here may not be the order in which they are called.

Hearing notice and official meeting agenda will post on the Los Angeles City website ( sometime on Thursday 6/25/09.
