Pot dispensaries turn against L.A.'s marijuana tax proposal

Mar 4, 2011 8:28:53 PM- latimes.com

When Oakland's voters slapped the nation's first tax on marijuana sales a year and a half ago, the city's dispensaries backed the ballot measure, pushing it as a way to be seen as legitimate businesses.
