Map: If Pot Dispensaries Were Limited to 1000 Ft. From Homes

As the ongoing debate over how to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, the City Council this week was faced with a proposal to distance facilities from homes by 1,000 feet. With no visuals and data at hand to visualize the impact or lack therof, they asked the planning department to create a map. So far, one has not been produced, but Eric Richardson at blogdowntown played with a residential map of downtown to see how it looked. It looks like good places to setup shop are in the Seafood, Produce, Fashion and Industrial districts. Oh, and around City Hall.
