Where’s the weed?

Before a 2007 moratorium, the city of Los Angeles had issued 186 medical marijuana dispensary licenses. Since the moratorium, nearly 800 applications for hardship exemptions have been filed.

A proposed Los Angeles city ordinance would prohibit dispensaries within 1,000 feet of a school, library or park. A Times analysis found that at least 260 of the addresses on file with the city clerk would be within a restricted zone. Operators contend that applications allow them to conduct business until the city reviews their cases. But many of the applications are no more than paper filed to secure future rights. Among those are the 58 registered at 8619 Reseda Blvd. Meanwhile, the reviews are proceeding so slowly that fewer than 100 cases have been decided.

NOTE: Two locations, the Herbal Cure and Superior Herbal Health, could not be plotted.

    April Fools ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE is scrawled in blood red lettering on the side of the Chemical Bank near the corner of Eleventh and First and is in print large enough to be seen from the backseat of the cab as it lurches forward in the traffic leaving Wall Street and just as Timothy Price notices the words a bus pulls up, the advertisement for Les Miserables on its side blocking his view, but Price who is with Pierce & Pierce and twenty-six doesn't' seem to care because he tells the driver he will give him five dollars to turn up the radio, "Be My Baby" on WYNN, and the driver, black, not American, does so.
