L.A. City Council Bans Pot Dispensaries

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to ban all pot dispensaries, the Los Angeles Times reports. Under the ban, all 762 dispensaries registered in the city will be sent letters ordering them to shut down immediately. But the City Council opened the door to letting some remain; it asked the staff to draw up a measure allowing original shops to stay open.
