Medical Pot Advocates Aim To Overturn L.A. Dispensary Ban
On Thursday, Los Angeles area medical marijuana advocates are expected to submit 50,000 voter signatures in support of a proposed March 2013 city ballot measure that would overturn the recent L.A. City Council-approved ban on dispensaries. If enough signatures are validated, the ban -- set to take effect on Sept. 6 -- will be temporarily suspended until the March vote.
