L.A.'s Medical Pot Scene, Still a "Wild Wild West" Until 2010


L.A.'s medical pot dispensary scene, considered an unregulated nightmare by many on both sides of the medical pot divide (mostly because they think there are "too many of them," and not operating in the spirit and standards they think appropriate, an uncertain concept indeed), will continue at least another few weeks without a new set of regulations from the City Council.

I'll have much more to say on this in a forthcoming Reason magazine feature, but for some details on some of the Council's sticking points, and the debate over how fair L.A.'s free alt-weekly L.A. Weekly has been in its severe criticisms of the medical pot "industry," see my latest entry at my Southern California news and politics blog "City of Angles."
