The Pot Crackdown: From 400 to 41

Hosted by

During years when the City Council was otherwise occupied, hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries sprung up all over Los Angeles. When the Council finally passed a restrictive ordinance, 169 applied to stay in business. Yesterday, the City Clerk announced that just 41 will be eligible. We hear from the president of a local medical marijuana collective and from the city attorney who helped draft the ordinance and is defending it in court.
