Lodi, CA / Bilingual Weekly
Lodi has added yet another difference with Stockton.
Whereas medical marijuana sale is allowed and regulated in Stockton and 33 other cities throughout California, the Lodi City Council has declared it wants nothing to do with it.
Citing federal and state law inconsistencies, and murky details on what could be considered legal about the business, City officials just said they “will stay away from it”
In spite of a 53.5% over 46.5% defeat on the November 2010 General Election, legalization of marijuana dispensaries in California is still a local government issue and it is up to them to allow it within their jurisdictions.
The conflict with federal laws was settled on 2009 when federal officials announced that they will no longer try to block medical marijuana distribution and use in California.
