Los Angeles -- Declaring half of the City’s medical marijuana dispensaries closed, City Attorney Mike Feuer has announced action against Los Angeles’ first smartphone APP for medical marijuana delivery.
"My office has moved aggressively to shut down unlawful medical marijuana businesses, already closing half the dispensaries operating in Los Angeles," said City Attorney Mike Feuer. "And today we're taking action on a new front, tackling medical marijuana delivery."
In the 17 months since Feuer took office he has closed 402 medical marijuana dispensaries, half of the operating dispensaries.
Feuer’s Office has filed over 200 criminal cases against 743 defendants including both the dispensary operators as well as the property owners. The City Attorney has also taken civil action including an injunction closing a popular medical marijuana farmers market in July.
The lawsuit alleges NESTDROP, LLC of, “…a flagrant attempt to evade the restrictions on the unregulated and illegal delivery of marijuana by motor vehicles to homes and places of business throughout the City of Los Angeles, in blatant disregard of the strictures of Proposition D, enacted by the voters of the City in the Spring of 2013.”
The case is being spearheaded by Assistant City Attorney Asha Greenberg.
