Anthony Wooley is the manager of MCCG, a medical marijuana dispensary near the intersection of Broadway and 54th Street.

The Patient Care Alliance sued the City of Los Angeles today to block the ban of marijuana dispensaries within the city limits, scheduled for September 6. Last month, the L.A. City Council voted unanimously to shut down storefront clinics that sell medical marijuana as well as allowing collectives no more than three patients or caregivers to grow their own. David checks in with KPCC’s reporters about what chance the lawsuit has and what’s most likely to happen next.
