Judge Throws Out Riverside’s Medical Pot Dispensary Ban
On Friday, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Ronald Taylor rejected the county's ban on medical marijuana dispensaries, saying it conflicts with state law that permits dispensaries and protects them from local ordinances. The ruling came in response to one of several lawsuits against such bans. The issue is expected to be taken up by the state Supreme Court.
