Medical Marijuana Dispensary Ban in Los Angeles Halted For Now

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, September, 14th 2012 by THCFinder

Last months some 50,000 people in Los Angeles spoke out against the newly adopted full ban on medical marijuana dispensaries in the city of Los Angeles by signing a petition to get a ban repeal on the ballot.


"We're letting the city council know that they can't just come in and trump the will of the people, and that when they do things that are very unpopular, the people can stand up and say stop," said Don Duncan, California director of Americans for Safe Access.


"After the city council adopted the ban, patients, collective operators and organized labor all got together and organized a referendum campaign," said Duncan, "we were able to actually block the implementation of the ban before it even took effect and so that's a tremendous victory for patients."


Duncan sat down with ReasonTV's Tracy Oppenheimer to discuss the battle for medical marijuana, which he says isn't over yet. Voters have to either overturn the ban via the ballot box this spring, or come up with their own ordinance through the voter initiative process.


Advocates in Los Angeles must be ready for more battles with the city government ahead.
