L.A. Votes To Curtail Medical Marijuana

Los Angeles, California voters have chosen to support a ballot measure that will decrease the number of medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. According to Reuters the last ballot count showed 63% of cast votes in favor of the measure.

The ballot measure is set to limit the total number of dispensaries to 135 and increase the tax rate to 6% (from 5%). While Marijuana remains an illegal narcotic at the federal level, many states have already legalized its use for recreation and medicine.
