State law establishes several unique requirements for licensed testing laboratories which make this endeavor particularly well-suited for UCI and the Institute for Cannabis.

Such an ordinance would allow a potential Irvine testing lab, and also be consistent with the city's goals of public safety and protection. However, such an amendment would also be necessary in order for the lab to legally operate in Irvine.
