A California Supreme Court ruling earlier this month will allow cities and counties to use their own zoning laws to ban the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries within their borders.  This law may seem like a set back for those already trying to set up shop in San Diego, but it really just depends on the will of the citizens living in the city.  Alex Kreit, former chair of the City of San Diego’s Medical Marijuana Task Force and a professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, says that most localities that want to have a ban already do.

The war between federal and state marijuana laws continues to rage on.  What do you think?  Do you think states/cities/counties should be able to decide for themselves?  Leave us your thoughts below!
