LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attorneys for the city of Los Angeles are seeking an injunction to stop an outdoor medical marijuana farmers market in Boyle Heights.

The California Heritage Market, operated by the West Coast Collective, opened for business over the Fourth of July weekend, attracting big crowds hoping to sample the offerings.

City Attorney Mike Feuer will ask a judge Tuesday to block the operation, claiming it runs afoul of a voter-approved measure limiting the number of dispensaries in the city and is an unauthorized use of the property.

David Welch, an attorney for West Coast Collective, tells City News Service that Feuer has no evidence against the collective and is “simply making wild allegations.”

Welch says collective members who grow marijuana are allowed to sell their products to other members.

Starting next month, America’s remaining tobacco growers will be totally exposed to the laws of supply and demand. The very last buyout checks go out in October to about 425,000 tobacco farmers and landowners. They’re the last holdovers from a price-support and quota system that had guaranteed minimum prices for most of the 20th century, sustaining a way of life that began 400 years ago in Virginia.
