"Gentle Ban" For Marijuana Dispensaries?

New, 14 comments

Here's something that happened on a Friday before a long weekend: the City Council's Public Safety Committee passed on to the full Council a draft of an ordinance that would ban all medical marijuana dispensaries, "but allow primary caregivers to dispense the drug and licensed patients to grow their own," according to the City News Service. The City Attorney's office calls this a "gentle ban." According to the LA Times, "the city would not prosecute ill patients or their caregivers who were growing marijuana, as long as there was no third party involved and no money was changing hands."
