In case you haven’t heard, California is about to become the largest state in the country to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana.

However, you won’t be able to find a dispensary selling pot for recreational usage in Los Angeles on Jan. 1.

Why? Because L.A.won’t be accepting applications to sell legal recreational pot until Jan. 3. According to the AP, the state of California had issued only 42 retail licenses as of yesterday.

Guest host Alex Cohen speaks to one of these businesses with the license to sell.

Guests:

Elliot Spagat, reporter for the AP; his latest piece looks at some of the retail pot stores that are gearing up for the sale of recreational marijuana. He tweets @elliotspagat

Daniel Yi, spokesperson for MedMen, a cannabis management and investment firm; they manage MedMen West Hollywood, which will sell adult-use recreational marijuana starting January 2
