Los Angeles judge halts cannabis farmers market

potmaktLOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles judge has issued a temporary restraining order blocking the operation of an outdoor medical marijuana farmers market.

City News Service reports the judge ruled Tuesday after attorneys for the city of Los Angeles asked for the injunction.

The California Heritage Market, operated by the West Coast Collective, opened for business in Boyle Heights over the Fourth of July weekend, attracting big crowds hoping to sample the offerings.

City Attorney Mike Feuer claims it runs afoul of a voter-approved measure limiting the number of dispensaries in the city and is an unauthorized use of the property.

David Welch, an attorney for West Coast Collective, says collective members who grow marijuana are allowed to sell their products to other members.
