Concerned with a proposal to restrict medical marijuana dispensaries within 1,000 feet of residential areas, the Los Angeles City Council today postponed voting the ordinance into law until next week Wednesday when they can examine maps of current legal facilities in relation to neighborhoods. That means issues revolving around collectives will likely be fully resolved in 2010. Yesterday, the group did finalize one aspect of the matter: the number that could legally operate within the city.
