(Newser) – The Los Angeles City Council has voted to shut down almost 90% of the city's estimated 1,000 medical marijuana dispensaries. The council decided to restrict the number of dispensaries in the city to 70. All of the 137 dispensaries currently operating that registered with the city early will be allowed remain open for now, but they may be forced to relocate away from clusters of dispensaries, the Los Angeles Times reports.
