Measure M Is the Most Important L.A. Ballot Initiative You Haven't Heard of
There's a very important measure pertaining to marijuana legalization on the March 7 city ballot, but you might not be familiar with it. The election season instead has been dominated by Measure S, which if approved would curb most major development in Los Angeles for two years. That initiative has attracted such heat that each of its opposing camps is accusing the other of being Trumplike.
Meanwhile, Measure M, which would allow the City Council to fully legalize medical pot shops in L.A. and would clear the way for recreational weed retailers in the city next year, is getting nowhere near that kind of attention — and Election Day is less than a month away.
