Pico Rivera, California, is a small city with just shy of 64,000 residents, located to the southeast of Los Angeles.1 After the state of California passed Proposition 64, which legalizes recreational marijuana, Pico Rivera struggled with the best approach to manage the arrival of dispensaries and possession of this potent drug. Just before Prop 64 went into effect in much of the state, Pico Rivera put a 45-day ban on dispensaries.2

The 45-day ban stops commercial ventures like warehouses and dispensaries for recreational marijuana from forming. In past years, Pico Rivera had also banned medical marijuana use in the city. The new ban was to make it clear that the city would not allow these businesses, at least in the short-term, while the rest of the state decided recreational marijuana sales were okay.

Los Angeles County, of which Pico Rivera is a part, has long struggled with marijuana abuse. Several cities in the county have decided not to allow recreational marijuana because this drug can be addictive, and making more available for abuse could harm teenagers or people who have suffered from addiction problems in the past. A survey of Los Angeles County residents from 2012 to 2014 found that, in the month before being surveyed, about 8% of respondents abused marijuana.3

Residential Rehabilitation Centers

Before recovery can start, the body must be cleaned. This is known as detoxification. Many narcotics will leave the addict with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to having the substance. Professionally administered detox can minimize the discomfort for anyone seeking to get clean and sober.
