About La Mesa
La Mesa sports a population of about 60,000 people, many of which use medical marijuana. The territory around La Mesa was originally a part of a land grant made from the King of Spain to missionaries. The original settlement appeared in the annals of history around 1869. By 1900, the settlement's population stood at a microscopic 150 residents. The city itself was incorporated some fifty-ish years later in 1912 with a population of but a few thousand. Interestingly, the city adheres to the laws of California rather than making specific ordinances. And why not? What have other municipalities really gained by re-inventing the wheel -so to speak.
Lumber was one of the first of going concerns. The city is not without innovation. One of the first ever bottled water companies was formed and operated out of the city in 1907. The return of veterans from World War II sparked exponential growth until 1980. The city's population has grown little in the past thirty years.

The ordinance specifies the zones where dispensaries, manufacturing, and cultivation will be allowed. Conditional use permits will be required, along with security measures, including cameras, alarms, and guards.

The actions were taken following the adoption of a series of regulations covering the sale and cultivation of marijuana by the state that were signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown.
