Another Crackdown on Medical Marijuana Medical marijuana is legal in California but prohibited under federal law, and that's created confusion in the courts and in many cities. The City of Los Angeles once had as many as 850 dispensaries, but now the City Council is divided over a proposal to ban them altogether. In the meantime, City Attorney Carmen Trutanich is targeting dispensaries operating within 600 feet of schools, relying on state law. If he succeeds, it'll cost violators $5,000 a day as long as they stay open.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan?
