LB City Council Approves Moving Ahead With Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana Long Beach

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries might be making a legalized way to Long Beach in the near future as the city council voted 6 to 3 with Council members Stacy Mungo, Suzie Price and Al Austin voitng no. The city will move forward with a draft ordinance that would provide uniform guidelines for 9 dispensaries allowing 1 in each district to operate store fronts in the city. The 2012 ban might be lifted and is now at state level with the bill on the governors desk. No time frame given for the city attorney’s office to return with an ordinance for first reading. Changes could be made to the law at that time.  Stay tuned to long local news for further updates.
