L.A. City Council Votes to Overturn Medical Marijuana Dispensary Ban

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, October, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder

On Tuesday the Los Angeles City Council voted 11-2 to repeal its recent ban on medical marijuana dispensaries, averting a ballot showdown with advocates over the issue.


The vote leaves Los Angeles, once again, without any law regulating medical marijuana dispensaries. But that does not necessarily mean dispensaries will be allowed to stay open.


Council members say they are hoping that a new federal crackdown on L.A. dispensaries may accomplish what they hoped to achieve with their ban. “That is our relief,” Councilman Jose Huizar said of the federal action, which began last week with raids on several dispensaries. Dozens of other pot shops were sent letters, ordering them to close.


The L.A. City Council is always in favor of others doing their job for them. At some point they have to realize that they need to come up with a set of reasonable regulations for dispensaries in the city.


City officials may also seek to shut down dispensaries on their own by prosecuting operators for violating city land use laws.


The battle over dispensaries is far from over in Los Angeles, but the council is on the ropes.
