LA Notified 140 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries to Close Immediately
Stepping up its drive to close pot shops, the Los Angeles city attorney’s office has notified operators of 140 medical marijuana dispensaries that they must close immediately.
The office sent letters to the concerned dispensaries whose owners did not file applications by the February 18 deadline to participate in a lottery to choose 100 shops that will operate in the city. The office received 228 applications, which are being reviewed to make sure they meet qualifications. One of the requisites is having been operational since September 14, 2007.
Assistant city attorney Asha Greenberg has warned that violators could be sued and could face penalties. LAPD will also investigate the shops that don’t follow the order immediately.Tags: marijuana, medical marijuana, medical marijuana dispensary, medical marijuana los angeles, medical marijuana shops, medical pot shops, pot shops
