Since 2015, Los Angeles restaurants and bars began adding cannabidiol, or CBD, to cocktail menus. For an extra fee or elevated price, bars offer the non-psychoactive cannabis extract as a supplement to any drink. This trend expanded greatly after Jan. 1, 2018, when California legalized the recreational use of cannabis. But adding CBD to any cocktail at a public establishment is now illegal, thanks to Governor Jerry Brown signing Assembly Bill 2914 in late September.
AB 2914’s official stance prohibits bars and liquor stores from selling alcohol drinks with cannabis.
