With L.A. Dispensary Ban On Hold, What Now?

Last week, Los Angeles medical marijuana patients and their allies turned in about 50,000 signatures to halt a new City Council ban on dispensaries, which was scheduled to take effect Thursday. Today, the clubs are open for business, and while the city says it still doesn’t permit them, dispensaries should be paying their taxes, Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich wrote in this September 5th letter suspending the dispensary ban.

The ban is suspended for at least 15 days while the City counts the signatures, he writes. Meanwhile, “… applicable City and state laws will continue to be enforced by the City Attorney’s Office, as well as other law enforcement and regulatory agencies.”
