The Medical Pot Situation in L.A.: Chaotic

There has been lots of action on the medical pot scene in Los Angeles this past week--a court decision striking down previous city attempts to declare a moratorium on new medical pot dispensaries, an angry city attorney vowing they are all illegal and he's gonna get 'em, and a new proposed ordinance with very tough standards awaiting City Council consideration.

I sum up the scene with loads of links and quotes over at my California politics and news blog "City of Angles," including links back to Jacob Sullum's skeptical take below on the meaning of the Obama administration's annoucement this week that they will not use federal resources to go after medical users.
