#californiacannabis – “On the Nov. 8 ballot there remains a city-sponsored cannabis initiative crafted to combat the now-withdrawn citizen’s initiative. City officials wanted to lay out their own parameters for local control over marijuana dispensaries. But now, it’s too late to withdraw the city’s initiative. City Council has no choice but to put its cannabis initiative in front of voters on Nov. 8….

The citizen’s initiative would have put a limit of two dispensaries in El Segundo. The city-sponsored initiative has no limit on the number of stores, but puts local control parameters in place such as a minimum store space of 1750 square-feet and ensuring there are stores only east of Pacific Coast Highway.”
