More Than 100 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Close in L.A. in Wake of New Law
On Monday, Los Angeles Attorney Mike Feuer announced that more than 100 medical marijuana dispensaries have closed since a new law took effect last summer that taxes such businesses and requires them to register with the city under several city ordinances dating back to 2007. Despite the closures, the city finance office says more than 300 medical marijuana dispensaries have registered to pay taxes, including nearly 200 with no previous record in the system.
