Medical Marijuana Advocates Plan Strategy Against LA Dispensary Ban
Medical marijuana advocates vowed Wednesday to overturn the City Council’s newly approved ban on the stores.
While Los Angeles officials were working out exactly how to phrase a letter to 762 registered pot dispensaries ordering them to shut down, medical marijuana advocates vowed Wednesday to overturn the City Council’s newly approved ban on the stores. The ban was approved unanimously on Tuesday after hours of debate and years of consternation over the growing number of pot shops in the city.
The council’s action followed a seemingly contradictory 9-5 vote on a proposal that would allow 182 marijuana dispensaries that registered with the city under a 2007 ordinance to remain in operation. But the specifics of that proposal still need to be written and reviewed – a process that could take months.
