ATWATER VILLAGE MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARY AT GLENDALE BLVD / REVERE AVE RECEIVES “ORDER TO COMPLY” FROM DEPT. OF BUILDING & SAFETY
A medical marijuana dispensary at 3401 Glendale Blvd Unit B (at the corner of Revere Ave) in Atwater Village has received an “Order to Comply” from the Dept. of Building & Safety. The marijuana dispensary, L.A. Collective, is operating without the proper Certificate of Occupancy permit.
According to Thomas Willis, Building & Safety Inspector, the marijuana dispensary will need to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy permit that would follow the same requirements as a “drugstore”. This would require it have handicap access and onsite parking, both of which this facility currently does not have.
It is unclear how long L.A. Collective has been in operation at this location. City authorities first became aware of this marijuana dispensary thru complaints from local residents that visitors to the marijuana dispensary are smoking their purchases in public view, often in parked cars next to the public library which is across from the dispensary on the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Revere Ave or the alleyways behind both the library and the dispensary.
