Unincorporated Los Angeles

     Los Angeles County covers 4,000 square miles. The unincorporated areas include more than 2,600 square miles, represent two-thirds of the County's land.

In early 2016 The LA County Board of Supervisors placed a ban on all cannabis activities in the unincorporated areas.

Angeles Emeralds was founded shortly after, with the goal of regulating cannabis in Unincorporated LA rather than banning it.
