L.A. Bans Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

July 25, 2012  | 

In the latest attempt to regulate what many say is an out-of-control proliferation of medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, the City Council voted 14-0 Tuesday to ban pot shops.

Under the ban, each of the 762 dispensaries that have registered with the city will be sent a letter ordering them to shut down immediately. Those that don't comply may face legal action from the city.

Medical marijuana activists who had packed the council chambers jeered when the vote came down. More than a dozen Los Angeles Police Department officers were called in to quell them.

This will last about as long as it takes to make it to election next time around.

This subject has been going back and fourth for too many years now. I say it's time to just make it legal nationwide. I agree that there is many negative things about smoking marijuana. Decriminalization for small amounts has been a good thing for the states that have done that. If it's your child, brother, sister, or friend and they go away for college or something and they get caught with a little pot I don't think anyone wants to see them go to jail?

Good old L.A., Leading the charge backwards in time. It seems the state of calif. oks medical marijuana and requires the shops register but L.A. says no. The land of fruits & nuts is clearly nuts. Shame they don't take the same stand on cop killers.
