LAPD Chief Bratton Wants Marijuana Sold in Regular Pharmacies


LAist LAPD Chief Bratton Wants Marijuana Sold in Regular Pharmacies “While I fully support [marijuana’s] use for medicinal purposes, why don’t we regulate it like we do Lipitor or Viagra,” Bratton said today at a media event unrelated to urging city council to expedite the new dispensary laws. “You can’t buy those two without getting it through a legitimate pharmacy. If this drug is so important and so helpful, why is it not regulated like every other drug?” In September 2007, the city placed a year-long moratorium on new dispensaries while the city drafted new regulations on them. Twice, the city has extended the moratorium, which is still in effect. Clearly frustrated at the state law passed thirteen years ago by voters, Bratton exclaimed, “they pass a law, then they have no regulations as to how to enforce the darn thing and, as a result, we have hundreds of these locations selling drugs to every Tom, Dick and Harry.” …………………………………………………… http://feeds.gothamistllc.com/click.phdo?i=b016a8a4fb849cb033dd14a81924dbf1
