LA Finally Has a Marijuana Ordinance, but Story Is Far from Over

Hosted by

San Francisco charges fees to dispensaries of medical marijuana. Voters in Oakland have approved a tax on sales. In both cities, increased regulation has kept the number of dispensaries small. But in Los Angeles, while the City Council wrangled for four and a half years, there was no regulation and hundreds of dispensaries have cropped up all over town. Just this week, an ordinance finally received Council approval.
