San Diego to Stop Prosecuting Pot Dispensaries
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has ordered the City Attorney to stop prosecuting a dozen pending cases against medical marijuana dispensaries, and for the city to temporarily halt any prosecutions until new regulations are put in place. Filner made public his support for the use of medical marijuana during his election campaign. His directive only impacts code enforcement, and does not affect cases brought by the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office or by federal authorities. For more information, click here.
