At its 10 a.m. meeting, the Los Angles City Council is scheduled to put the medical marijuana issue to rest. The new ordinance, which regulates dispensaries on a variety of issues such as location, hours of operation and security, must be considered two times and today is that second time. Although the over two-year debate is coming to an end, some advocates of access have threatened to bring lawsuits to the city, citing how the new code contradicts state law.
