Medical marijuana users, supporters and one self-described dispenser persuaded the City Council on Tuesday to delay an ordinance amending the city code, which they said threatens patients' access to the drug even if legally prescribed. The proposed ordinance, which was pulled off the agenda, specifies that operating licenses cannot be issued to any business that is illegal or unlawful under local, state or federal laws. The resolution authorizing the ordinance amendment, which did not refer in any way to medical marijuana dispensaries, would have gone into effect in 30 days if approved.

Let Ross Embry share his marijuana I strongly support Ross Embry's right to use the plant cannabis (marijuana) for health reasons ("Laguna man pleads innocent to marijuana charges," Coastline Pilot, Oct. 18). In the year 2002, it is mean spirited and sinful to cage humans for using cannabis. At the very minimum, North America must re-legalize cannabis, especially when you consider the worst side effects of cannabis are police inflicted. Do cannabis prohibitionists even comprehend that they're admitting a desire to cage humans for using a plant?

Laguna Beach should move expeditiously to come up with a practical way to provide marijuana to people who need it for medical reasons, by prescription. The City Council has basically told that to city staff, voting Feb. 17 to move forward with a plan to allow medical pot dispensaries in town. That order was made at the same time the council put a moratorium on issuing permits for the facilities ? an interesting move considering no official permits had ever been issued that we are aware of. The moratorium was triggered by an application for approval of a pot dispensary.

Times are getting tougher for medical marijuana users in Laguna Beach. Four months after the Laguna Beach City Council declined to approve an ordinance amendment to bar business licenses for medical marijuana facilities — citing "compassion" for cancer and AIDS patients — city officials have succeeded in pushing the facilities out. A medical marijuana dispensary that has operated since August closed up shop last week, lacking a...

The California Coastal Commission has rejected Laguna Beach's zoning ordinance amendments that would have prohibited medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. The commission voted 6 to 5 at the Jan. 12 to 14 meeting in Long Beach to deny the proposed amendment as submitted, disregarding a staff recommendation for approval. Some commissioners voiced concern that the amendment clashes with state law that allows the use of medical marijuana, but others were convinced that that was not within the commission's purview.

Question: Should medical marijuana dispensaries be allowed in Laguna? Answer: Yes The state of California does not provide any method for qualifying patients to receive medical cannabis. There is no place in the state to legally purchase medical cannabis. The state does not supply starter plants, nor will give advice on how to grow medical cannabis. Pressure should be put on the state to allow for collective and cooperative operations. A recent California Appellate Court decision in People v. Urziceanu marked the rare occasion when California courts eked out further protection for patient collectives/ cooperatives as well as dispensing collectives/cooperatives.
