Posted by with No Comments

The newly elected Mayor of  Los Angeles ,Eric Garcetti supports the full legalization of cannabis. Garcetti, who has served on the LA City Council since 2001, was an outspoken supporter of repealing the 2011 LA city ban on all pot shops, and openly expressed his support for medical marijuana throughout his mayoral campaign. In an interview with The Huffington Post in January of this year, then-candidate Garcetti was quoted as saying,

“I have publicly and repeatedly stated the best thing that the federal government could do is reclassify cannabis so that we can actually get folks the medicine that they need. I have consistently supported measures to enforce and maintain a reasonable number of dispensaries for sick individuals to get their medicine.”
