Regulation over pot clinics speeding up
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Consideration of a proposal to crack down on most new medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles is getting fast-tracked.
On Monday, Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant granted a preliminary injunction barring a moratorium on medical marijuana clinics in Los Angeles.
The very next day, the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office revealed a draft of a proposed ordinance that would be one of the state's most restrictive. The plan would force most dispensaries to close immediately and impose a six-month waiting period in order to apply for permission to open.
The ordinance would also outlaw over-the-counter sales of medical marijuana. The council could consider the proposal as soon as next week.
