Marijuana Dispensaries On Ballot in Four CA Cities

The goal is to force officials to allow them to operate


Medical marijuana has been legal in California since 1996. But today in San Diego County, many patients are having trouble getting their hands on the drug.  That's because all of the openly operating storefronts that sell marijuana have been shut down.

In response, activists in four local cities have placed measures to authorize medical marijuana dispensaries on the November ballot.   But even if the measures win, patients might ultimately lose.
