State Supreme Court http://kalw.org en Cannabis News Roundup: February 8, 2013 http://kalw.org/post/cannabis-news-roundup-february-8-2013 <p>(The Republic) // The State Supreme Court <a href="http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/55e1a8202980446db5dfcdd3f86b97f8/CA--Medical-Marijuana-California">heard oral arguments</a> Tuesday about whether cities have the authority to ban cannabis dispensaries within their jurisdictions. The defense argued that distribution should be permitted, because medical cannabis is legal statewide, thus superseding local ordinances. The Court didn’t seem convinced, but their ruling will not come until spring. Roughly 200 cities and counties in California have dispensary bans.</p> Fri, 08 Feb 2013 17:57:55 +0000 Steven Short 22870 at http://kalw.org Cannabis News Roundup: February 8, 2013
