Los Angeles City Council Overturns Their Medical Marijuana Dispensary Ban

  • by Erik Altieri, NORML Executive Director October 2, 2012

    In a 11-2 vote, the Los Angeles City Council voted to overturn their ban on medical cannabis dispensaries. The council had previously voted 14-0 in favor of banning all dispensaries in the city.

    Advocates vowed to overturn the ban and collected the more than 27,425 signatures required to force the council to either repeal the ban on their own or put the issue before voters early next year.

    This is an evolving situation and NORML will keep you updated as it develops.

      The government needs to put everyone in jail if they want to maintain the war on hemp! What a bunch of Babylon pigs. Nimrods!

      I’m curious what’s NORML’s take on the australian study comparing cigaretter withdrawal to cannabis!!??It’s obviously a small study funded by prohibitionist. I was wondering how it broke down because someone anticannabis was trying to rub this in my face the other day and I use it for chronic testicular pain/pelvic dysfunction/neurological lyme disease

    5. Great news finally! I was in LA in the summer and so many dispensaries had shut down! I hope they start to boom now!

      Just another irreproducible study.

      Yay! Good news! I really do hope that they legalize it. I personally hate the effects alcohol and prescription pills have had in my family. I can’t believe how deceived I was for so long. Children definitely should not do it. When I was a teenager, I would try and keep pace with my friends who were smoking it by the bowl-full. But when you’re 84 lbs and just under 5′ that’s not a good idea. The good thing is, unlike with alcohol, I always knew when I’d had my limit. It has that ability to humble you. Whereas with alcohol and prescription meds–not so much!!

      Why can’t flat earth folk get anyone to believe that the earth is flat? Yet, the Flat Earthers have convinced most people of late Marijuana should be taboo. While we don’t listen to them about the “flatness” of the earth, why do we listen to them about the “dangers” of marijuana? Anyone can verify that the Earth is a sphere and Marijuana is the safest “drug” on the Earth.
