It seems LA was the prime example of how legalizing medical marijuana can get out of hand. I had always heard the rumors about how lax it was there but now something is being done about it. Can you believe that the number of so-called medical marijuana dispensaries there had grown to over a 1000! Now the LA City Council is reducing that number to eventually around 70. California law also stipulates that physicians must have no relation with dispensaries and can only prescribe marijuana as a therapy. Damn. I know so many physicians who grew up in the 1960's and 1970's who would love to ride out into the sunset and semi-retire at their own head shops. Another dream killed for the epidemic of burned out physicians who are primed to quit the profession.
