California Supreme Court rules cities and counties across California have constitutional right to “Ban Marijuana Dispensaries”


Today, on May 06, 2013, the California Supreme Court ruled that cities and counties across California have the constitutional right to “Ban Marijuana Dispensaries” within their jurisdiction.   During the court proceedings, several of the justices stated their belief that legally, cities have the constitutional right to determine what businesses may or may not operate within their city [and county] limits, independent of State Law. The State of California cannot demand that dispensaries must be allowed without the consent of the city, itself.  In the wisdom of the California Supreme Court, this ruling is a huge victory for cities and counties of our state.  It is also a victory for our society, our culture and the very futures of our children.
