Well, we're certainly not in Colorado or Washington state anymore. Los Angeles officials proudly announced they have shut down more than 100 marijuana dispensaries since last year, when they began enforcing a new law that adds tax and operating requirements. Some of the new regulations include being registered under past Los Angeles ordinances and operating at an adequate distance from public parks, schools, and other facilities. City attorney Mike Feuer said it means any marijuana dispensary that opened since 2013 “can't be lawful.” Others argue this creates an unfair monopoly for older dispensaries. Before Proposition D was approved by voters, police estimated that 700 dispensaries operated in Los Angeles, but others say the number is significantly higher.
