We know that a legal pot shop in Tracy is already a long shot. On Tuesday, San Joaquin County's supervisors took a step toward making it equally hard for a dispensary to set up outside city limits.
The temporary ordinance banning dispensaries is just a stop-gap until a more permanent law can be written, according to this Lodi News Sentinel report. However, it sure seems like this could make it much easier for the county to simply wash its hands clean of the whole medical marijuana issue by banning dispensaries outright.
Which is, of course, the county leadership's perogative. Not that it makes any sense whatsoever.
