Citizen Panel Calls For Medical Marijuana Dispensary Regulations

— San Diego County's citizen grand jury is calling for better guidelines for medical marijuana dispensaries. The panel wants to see an end to the confusion surrounding the issue.

The citizen panel said medical marijuana dispensaries should be regulated. The report urges municipalities to approve clear rules that decide where and how many storefronts can operate. The report suggests there should be a ban on new medical marijuana storefronts until a city can pass those rules.

Victoria Stubblefield, panel leader, said law enforcement could do a lot to clear the air about medical marijuana.

"The report is recommending that if the district attorney and the sheriff's department would create guidelines, then it would educate legitimate people, how they can go about doing their business," Stubblefield said.

Stubblefield says the grand jury took on the issue because qualified medical marijuana patients say they're not sure what's legal and what's not.
