Many citizens spoke on the divide between those who advocate for medical marijuana use and those who do not before the Long Beach City Council voted 6-3 on Sep. 22 in favor of re-instituting medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the city of Long Beach.

But dispensaries are technically not allowed to open until the final regulations are passed by the city council, which they haven’t done yet.

The measure, proposed by Long Beach Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal, called for a maximum of nine medical marijuana dispensaries to be set up in non-residential areas throughout the city.
