The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously last Tuesday to ban medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is expected to sign it into law, setting up a major battle as well as legal confusion.
However Los Angeles County just tried the same thing and was overruled by a court. So why does L.A. think they can prevail? Worse, the city council is allowing 170 dispensaries to remain, which certainly seems to reek more than a warehouse filled with blooming marijuana plants.
