L.A. potheads, you dodged a big bullet this month, and hopefully you learned a lesson from it. With the looming specter of a total dispensary ban in Los Angeles coming down to the wire, "patients" of the medicinal system came damn close to losing their medicine. While you didn't quite go over the edge this time around, maybe you've gained a newfound appreciation for the wacky world of weed that makes California so wonderfully unique. Let's test that theory with a brand new WeedDown, our monthly (whenever we remember to do it) breakdown of the strangest, funniest, and most important marijuana related news from L.A. and beyond.
