City of LA Has More Pot Clinics Than Starbucks Stores

ACCORDING TO a new KCET-TV report, the City of Los Angeles now has about 500 medical marijuana dispensaries, more than it has Starbucks stores. Many pot clinics are open without City permission; they've simply applied for a permit and then opened shop. The SoCal Connected video mentions 11 dispensaries in the neighboring LA neighborhood of Eagle Rock, almost triple the number in the entire city of Oakland, CA.

For our part, Atwater Village has 4 pot clinics and only 2 Starbucks shops. See? We're trying to fit in.
