On Tuesday Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich submitted to Los Angeles City Council a 4th revision of the cities draft ordinance regulating the medical marijuana collectives in the city.

This is a draconian piece of legislation that would ban the sale of medical marijuana for cash, ban the sale of medibles (medicinal edibles), ban the production of concentrates and also prohibits any on site consumption of medical marijuana.

Los Angeles: Fourth Revised Draft Ordinance Regarding Medical Marijuana Collectives Issued

On Tuesday Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich submitted to Los Angeles City Council a 4th revision of the cities draft ordinance regulating the medical marijuana collectives in the city.

This is a draconian piece of legislation that would ban the sale of medical marijuana for cash, ban the sale of medibles (medicinal edibles), ban the production of concentrates and also prohibits any on site consumption of medical marijuana.

Advocates in Los Angeles were shocked when this was presented and plans are in the works for major protests and several attorney's that I contacted yesterday and this morning have stated they intend to hash this out in the courtroom.

In Los Angeles we have a City Attorney Carmen Trutanich and a County DA Steve Cooley that are out of control as well as out of touch with the wishes of the voters of Los Angeles, city and county.

A vote on this is expected shortly, possibly within the week.

Calls in to folks at city hall for more details have not been returned at this time.

A copy of the proposed ordinance is attached.
