The California Supreme Court has decided to review whether cities and counties may ban medical marijuana stores.
Meeting in closed session, the court Wednesday agreed to assess rulings by lower courts on how much oversight local governments may exert on medical marijuana operations. A ruling is probably a year or two away at least.
The court’s decision to review the appeals court decisions means they cannot be enforced pending a ruling by the state high court.
