(USA) L.A. City Council limits number of marijuana dispensaries at seventy

on . Posted in Medical Cannabis News & Information

The City Council voted Tuesday to cap the number of medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles at 70, but will allow almost double that number to stay open -- at least temporarily -- provided they adhere to new restrictions.   

The City Council granted a reprieve to 137 dispensaries that opened before a moratorium was declared in late 2007. If any of those dispensaries closes down or goes out of business, it will not be replaced until the overall number is reduced to 70.
