Of the seven medical marijuana dispensaries within walking distance of LAist's South Valley bureau offices, six are slated to be shut down. That's because an ordinance that will go into effect next month will limit the number of storefronts and where they can be located.

Now, thanks to a map by the LA Times, we all can a take a look at our homes and workplaces to see how our neighborhoods will change over the next month -- that is if pot shops comply with the law. In all, 437 locations were sent letters this week advising them to stop business by June 7th.
