Founded in 2010, Chronic Long Beach is one of Long Beach’s original medical cannabis dispensaries. After the City of Long Beach’s case, Summary Pak v. The Superior Court required us to close our doors on August 12, 2012, we decided to jump head-first into the fight for safe and legal cannabis access. An appreciation for cannabis and deep love for our community is why we’re founding members of the Long Beach Collective Association (LBCA), advocating for safe cannabis access, fair policies, and lower cannabis taxes.
