Press-Telegram reports, “Recreational marijuana sales can begin as soon as Aug 13. Under city law, the new industry’s application and permit renewal fees will help cover the costs of regulating pot businesses, including for performing background checks and inspections. “

Long Beach has already accepted applications for 32 dispensaries — the maximum allowed under city law — although some have not yet opened. But the regulations the council passed last month did not put a limit on how many other businesses, such as cultivators and manufacturers, can open.
