Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
The issue of whether to prohibit the sale of medical marijuana by means of dispensaries remains a controversial issue in California. Many local governmental bodies in California have sought to impose a moratorium on the licensing of marijuana dispensaries. The basis of such a ban would be based on an argument that the activity related to these dispensaries violates federal law. Cities have also used zoning ordinances to control the licensing of dispensaries and the attendant problems that accompany them in unwanted areas. In addition, cities may seek to condition their operation on not violating any federal or state law, which is akin to banning them, since their primary activities will always violate federal law as it now exists. The reason the legality of medical marijuana causes measured confusion is the overlap of local, state, and federal laws
