L.A. City Council votes 14-0 to ban medical marijuana shops – latimes.com

In the latest attempt to regulate what many say is an out-of-control proliferation of medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, the City Counted 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.

Two somewhat disparate thoughts:

  • where does this leave the ‘legalize it” movement? They did, they were an out of control nuisance to the point LA shut them down, and
  • if Government is in control of your industry, they can kill it.
