Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill last week intended to strengthen local authorities’ ability to adopt and enforce regulations restricting the establishment, locations, and operation of medical marijuana dispensaries. Government officials have been concerned by the seeming lawlessness of dispensaries and hope that this bill will work to hinder the proliferation of pot stores in California and particularly in Los Angeles County.
