Although the use of marijuana has been hitting some high notes around the nation, the same can’t be said for the city of Los Angeles. Not only are dispensaries being targeted, but so are the creators of apps that promote medical marijuana delivery within the city.
Los Angeles medical marijuana dispensaries have seen more than 400 closures since 2013 and there doesn’t seem to be any slowing in sight. More than 50% of the dispensaries in Los Angeles have been closed and LA city attorney Mike Feuer says that he isn’t stopping thanks to Proposition D.
“My office has moved aggressively to shut down unlawful medical marijuana businesses, already closing half the dispensaries operating in Los Angeles,” Feuer released in a statement, published by CBS Los Angeles. “Today we’re taking action on a new front, tackling medical marijuana delivery.”
The problem with this is simple: medical marijuana has been legal in California since 1996. Proposition 215 lists several illnesses that qualify for a prescription and hashish and concentrated cannabis are included as legal for personal medical use.
What does this mean for Los Angeles medical marijuana? That the 200 criminal cases against 743 different defendants is ridiculous at best. Targeting delivery companies that are in compliance just makes
That takes bullying to a new level. If you want to like Mike Feuer know what you think about his actions, then here is his contact information.
