At today's Los Angeles City Council meeting, Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr. agreed to continue the items related to medical cannabis. There was no vote on the full dispensary ban put on the table by Council members Jose Huizar and Mitchell Englander. The new date for the vote has been tentatively scheduled for the City Council's regularly-scheduled meeting on Tuesday, July 24 at 10 am.
Today’s vote continuation allows us more time to build, but must continue to rapidly grow our movement to win a responsible medical cannabis ordinance for Los Angeles.
