Sept. 6 Deadline Set for LA Collective Owners

 by lucy

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office announced yesterday that the city’s 1,000-plus medical marijuana collectives will need to cease operations and close their doors by September 6.  If collective owners do not heed the deadline, they will face legal action.

In addition to the legal repercussions, collective owners will also face financial consequences.  For each day that they remain open past the September 6 deadline, they will be fined $2,500 by the city.

Letters were sent to over 1,000 suspected collective locations and over 700 landlords, warning that both owners and landlords are liable if the dispensary remains open.

All collectives will be expected to close, but city officials have explained that police will initially target the collectives that have received the most complaints and make their way through the list to ensure that none remain open.

Under the new medical marijuana ordinance in the city, collectives are banned but patients may grow their own marijuana with one or two other patients.

Collective owners in the city are reacting to the impending closure date by gathering signatures in an attempt to get a referendum on the ballot to overturn the city’s ban.  According to Don Duncan, Director of Americans for Safe Access California, “The tens of thousands of patients harmed by this vote will not take it sitting down.  We will campaign forcefully to overturn this poor decision by the council.”

    shit'y council members are what they are wasted peaces of flesh the'll never change there like the damn hoa's home owners association. do everything for themselves and the rest go to hell . they seem to live perfect little lives for themselves until somebody shakes their apple cart the wrong way. we can't do this and we can't do that what they can't do is leave people and their things alone that don't belong too them. their parent's didn't teach them properly. Leave Other Peoples Things Alone do not Disturb you could get hurt screwing around.

      I agree this world is unfair ,only reason they should to take it away is if it was causing murders and deaths which it's not, Im assuming the crime rate has gone up and Marijuana is falling into the wrong hands like illegal dealers and young kids , but all this can be controlled , the collectives and the city can work together , I say tax the collectives & collect a fee to fight against associated crimes & young kids abusing the system

    This culture is absolutely fucked. This system is getting old, it's outdated. The people are starting to fight back now, and they will win eventually.
