Medical marijuana shops banned in parts of L.A. County

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to ban medical marijuana dispensaries in their unincorporated areas. Meanwhile, the Orange County Board of Supervisors was scheduled to vote on an identical measure also on Tuesday.

The proposals in the first and third largest counties in California would mark another setback for advocates seeking to advance marijuana into mainstream society. Earlier this month, California voters rejected a proposal to legalize the drug, though medical marijuana is legal throughout the state.

    We need to take our country back! There is nothing wrong with smoking a little weed now and then. It really helps with glaucoma. Grandma here uses it every day. Better than the stupid drops That are WAY to expensive!

      Shame on you for stoking the fires of Hell under grandma for he tote and her smoke contains the blood of victims and the innocent. Tell grandma to get Medicaid for her expensive drops.
