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. Many of the applications are no more than paper filed to secure future rights. Among those are the 58 registered at <a href="" onclick="gotoReseda();return false;">8619 Reseda Blvd</a>.
