San Diego Reverses Position on Medical Marijuana

The newly elected Mayor of San Diego has ordered the city to drop legal action against medical marijuana dispensaries.

It's a complete reversal from the policies of former Mayor Jerry Sanders. Advocates say that under Sanders' administration the city forced over a hundred dispensaries out of business.
