California advocates file signatures to get dispensaries back in Santa Ana


A group of “concerned citizens and business owners” is filing signatures today with the Santa Ana City Clerk, hoping to turn around the recent “Potpocalypse” in that city.
In case you weren’t aware, an explosion of medical marijuana dispensaries occurred in Santa Ana after the first election of President Barack Obama. However, starting in 2011, both the feds and local officials in Orange County began cracking down on pot shops, forcing all but a handful of storefronts in Santa Ana, Garden Grove and Anaheim to shut down. As recently as last November, the city sent letters to all dispensaries warning them to shut down or face prosecution.
