Last month, the Los Angeles city council voted to ban medical marijuana dispensaries in that city, and the city recently sent letters to those dispensaries instructing them to close by September 6. In response, supporters of medical cannabis launched a petition drive seeking to trigger a referendum on the anti-marijuana ordinance this March. If signature gatherers successfully gather 27,400 signatures within three weeks, they will not only force a referendum, they will also suspend the ordinance until the referendum takes place.
