CALIFORNIA: The Los Angeles city attorney is seeking an injunction to stop what’s being dubbed as the city’s first-ever cannabis-centric farmers market, which opened for business over the Fourth of July weekend.
The medical marijuana market opened July 4-6 inside a Boyle Heights warehouse and continued to operate this past weekend, following its successful start.
But City Atty. Mike Feuer says his office will request a temporary restraining order to stop operations.
“We’re fighting to stop this end-run around the will of the voters who enacted Proposition D,” Feuer said in a statement. “We allege these events also violate city land-use law and are causing a public nuisance. We will do everything we can to put a halt to them.”
Feuer’s action alleges the market didn’t comply with requirements outlined in Proposition D, a ballot measure passed last year that set up the legal parameters for dispensaries to remain open.
