Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer’s office has secured permanent injunctions enjoining the operator, property owner, real estate broker and real estate salesperson from opening a medical marijuana business in Mar Vista in West Los Angeles.
The dispensary had sought to open, and was in violation of Proposition D, according to Feuer. The injunctions mark the first time that a real estate broker and salesperson were included in an enforcement action.
“We will use every tool available to us to enforce Proposition D and uphold the will of the voters,” Feuer said. “Our Office will be launching an education campaign directed to real estate brokers, salespersons and leasing agents to help them comply with Proposition D. It is essential for them to understand the law and the seriousness of their aiding an unlawful medical marijuana business to open. They need to know that they, along with dispensary owners and landlords, could find themselves included in our enforcement efforts.”
In addition to the civil enforcement action in Mar Vista, the City Attorney’s Office has filed 68 criminal cases against medical marijuana business operators and property owners. The permanent injunctions against the Mar Vista dispensary were issued by Superior Court Judge James Chalfant. They prohibit the defendants from establishing, operating, renting, leasing or otherwise permitting a medical marijuana business to occupy a space at 3472 Centinela Ave.
