Supervisors vote to crack down on illegal medical marijuana dispensaries

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors vowed Tuesday– in a 4-0 vote — to crack down on illegal marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated areas.

Supervisor Michael Antonovich recommended setting up an enforcement team of representatives from the Department of Regional Planning, Sheriff’s Department, and the offices of the County Counsel, District Attorney and Treasurer-Tax Collector.

“A streamlined Medical Marijuana Dispensary Enforcement Team will speed up our effort to shut down and prosecute illegal marijuana dispensaries,” Antonovich said. “These illegal operations have routinely attracted a criminal element that threaten community safety and disrupt neighborhoods.”

The county has banned medical marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated areas since 2011, using its zoning laws to enforce the prohibition.
