LA City Attorney's Plan to Regulate Medical Marijuana

Hosted by

Since voters approved its use 13 years ago, many California cities have established rules for prescribing and dispensing medical marijuana. They're based on Attorney General Jerry Brown's official opinion that over-the-counter sales for medicinal purposes are legal for nonprofit operations. In Los Angeles, law enforcement officials disagree and the lack of specific guidelines has led to an explosion of marijuana dispensaries. Today, City Attorney Carmen Trutanich submitted an ordinance to the City Council.
