It's been 13 years since the passage of Prop 215, and the city of Los Angeles still does not have a permanent ordinance regulating medical marijuana clinics. Correspondent Judy Muller looks at the proliferation of clinics across the city and who that's making nervous. Is graffiti vandalism or art? Maybe an age-old question, but Correspondent Vince Gonzales reports that at the same time as law enforcement imposes harsher penalties on graffiti writers, the fine art world and corporate America are embracing them. And then, the 15 Los Angeles dity council members earn about $80,000 more than their counterparts in more expensive San Francisco and New York, and way more than the Miami City Council, whose part-time pay is just $6,000 a year. At nearly $180,000 a year our council members - public servants as they are called - earn 400% more than the average Angeleno. L.A. Weekly Editor Jill Stewart says in no other city could we find as big a disparity.
