L.A. council delays consideration of marijuana ordinance
The Los Angeles City Council has put off further consideration of the city's medical marijuana ordinance until next Wednesday.
Council members this morning cited concerns that the ordinance's ban on dispensaries within 1,000 feet of homes was too restrictive. They said they wanted to put off a vote on the measure until they could examine maps being prepared by the Planning Department that would show where up to 137 dispensaries could operate legally.
"Let's do it the right way," said Council President Eric Garcetti.
