LOS ANGELES (AP) — Medical marijuana operators want more pot dispensaries in Los Angeles.

The operators asked the City Council on Tuesday to allow more dispensaries, saying many pot distributors will simply operate illegally.

Only 41 of the city’s 169 applicants have met medical marijuana clinic standards and are allowed to remain in business.

But marijuana dispensary operators and supporters said 41 clinics isn’t enough for the nation’s second-largest city. Councilman Bill Rosendahl agreed that the city needs to re-examine the city imposed limit.

The city attorney’s office says it is not enforcing the 41-clinic limit until the courts rule on its validity.

    Give me a break. Law enforcement tells us these have become havens for drug gangs to distribute to the communities. Several robberies, one man in Glendora killed another during a drug deal gone bad, he was trying to sll his “necessary” medical pot. This is all a scam and those that say they will operate illegally should be raided and put in jail.
