Will the City of LA Ban Medical Marijuana Dispensaries?

Hosted by

The Los Angeles City Council's considering a total ban on shops that sell medical marijuana, at least until the State Supreme Court decides if it's legal for cities even to authorize their existence. Also at issue is the conflict between what voters legalized in 1996 and federal law, which says they're illegal. Right now there are at least 300, many of which sport neon signs and advertise that "the doctor is in." We hear from a councilman who supports a ban and from the Union of Medical Marijuana Patients. Also, the suicide of Soul Train creator Don Cornelius. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, despite Mitt Romney's big win in Florida, Republicans are more divided than ever.
