Episode Description

Robert A. Kahn, attorney of Woodland Hills, Calif., and adjunct professor of law at Loyola Law School, filed a lawsuit on behalf of medical marijuana dispensaries Los Angeles Collective Association (LACA) and Westside Green Oasis, seeking a temporary restraining and an injunction against the city of Los Angeles, precluding it from closing the stores, and fining and arresting their owners and landlords based on an expired Interim Control Ordinance (ICO): "In a time of economic hardship, Los Angeles is squandering taxpayer money by going after the dispensaries and trying to enforce an ordinance that does not comply with state law. The city's actions make it even more difficult for those with legitimate medical needs and a doctor's approval to obtain marijuana that may help ease pain and suffering." Kahn has been practicing law in California for more than 30 years.
