LA dealing with dispensary hardship cases
Brett Stone brought this to my attention. LA has put an0other moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries, but some are appealing to stay open. Cahuenga Caregivers was one of the original authorized dispenaries but had to move after its landlord was issued an eviction threat from the DEA (I don't think the DEA ever followed up on any of those, it was just a harassment/intimidation technique by an agency that knew it didn't have the resources to begin to close all the dispensaries. Anyway, the city has told the outfit it has to close because it moved to its new location after the November 2007 moratorium and the appeal will be heard June 17. About 50 other clubs are in a similar situation.
