Illegal Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Target of Team
To enhance the county’s enforcement, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a motion by Supervisors Michael D. Antonovich and Hilda Solis to develop a Medical Marijuana Enforcement Dispensary Team composed of representatives of the county Dept. of Regional Planning, County Counsel, Sheriff’s Dept., the District Attorney’s Office and the Treasurer Tax Collector.

“A streamlined Medical Marijuana Dispensary Enforcement Team will speed up our effort to shut down and prosecute illegal marijuana dispensaries,” Antonovich said. “These illegal operations have routinely attracted a criminal element that threaten community safety and disrupt neighborhoods.”
