How the ban on street food continued to exist in a city with as many pot dispensaries as LA I’ll never know.
Food street vendors are a common sight in cities across the nation. Selling everything from tamales and hot dogs to halal and ice cream, they’re more than just a convenient way to get food while on the go in populated areas. For the vendors, its often their primary source of income and how they aim to feed their families.
Up until today, Los Angeles was the only major American city to enforce criminal penalties for street vending, according to Fox 11 Los Angeles. That changed with a groundbreaking vote in the Los Angeles City Council Chambers earlier this afternoon.
