Court Rules California Cities Can Ban Medical Marijuana Shops

Court Rules California Cities Can Ban Medical Marijuana Shops

California’s highest court ruled on Monday that local California cities have the legal authority to ban medical marijuana shops.

The court upheld a ban enacted by the city of Riverside in 2010. Advocacy group Americans for Safe Access says another 200 jurisdictions in California have similar bans on pot sales.

Marijuana advocates argue local government bans block the intent of California’s medical marijuana law to allow access to the drug for those with doctor’s recommendations to use it.
