LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles city commission has voted to grant limited immunity to medical marijuana clinics.
The Los Angeles Daily News (http://bit.ly/WyH3zL ) says the Planning Commission voted Thursday to allow some clinics to keep operating if they meet certain rules, such as paying taxes and limiting hours.
About 180 dispensaries would qualify.
The issue now goes to the City Council, which passed a total ban on the clinics in July. That ban was rescinded in October after supporters qualified a ballot measure that seeks to overturn the ban.
The clinics still face federal and state prohibitions against marijuana sales.
