Pot Shop Owners Challenge LA Ban

Proposed ballot measure would bypass politicians


Medical marijuana dispensary owners across Los Angeles will be receiving glum news in the mail this week: a letter from the city telling them it's time to shut down. 

But despite threats of fines and jail time, some dispensary owners have vowed to stay open. They say they are working hard to qualify a ballot measure to overturn the ban on storefront sales of medical marijuana passed last month by the Los Angeles City Council.
