LA City Council reverses ban on medical marijuana dispensaries

The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to repeal the ban on medical marijuana dispensaries that it passed in July. AP reports the repeal, which passed on an 11-to-2 vote, came after opponents of the ban gathered enough signatures for a voter referendum.

In supporting the repeal, some council members said they needed better guidance from legislators and urged them to address inadequacies in a state law allowing the use of medical marijuana. The city’s ban would have eliminated storefronts but would have permitted patients and caregivers to grow medical marijuana.

Officials have said that more than 750 dispensaries had registered with the city and as many as 200 more could exist.
