Medical marijuana enforcement efforts
LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer and police Chief Charlie Beck will announce a campaign to help property owners and real estate agents comply with Proposition D, a voter-approved measure regulating medical marijuana dispensaries.
Proposition D, approved last May, bans all but about 100 medical marijuana dispensaries.
Feuer has gone after not only dispensary owners but also property owners leasing space to unauthorized pot dispensaries.
Those who violate the voter-approved ban face misdemeanor charges that carry penalties of up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail.
Since the pot shop ban took effect July 20, Feuer has opened at least 68 cases against business and property owners. He also has secured an injunction against real estate brokers and a sales person involved in a planned medical marijuana dispensary in Mar Vista.
