Los Angeles Ban on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Number of Pot Shops In LA Half of What Is Estimated

UCLA study puts number at 472

As the debate over the future of Los Angeles' medical marijuana dispensaries rages on, a new study has found there are far fewer pot shops in LA than previously stimated by the city.

The UCLA study comes after the City Council approved a hotly debated ban on dispensaries, saying they had grown out of control. The ban has prompted advocates to sue and gather signatures to ask voters to overturn that measure.
