A statement from Americans for Safe Access called the city’s undercover purchases entrapment, and may join the lawsuit “as an intervening defendant, representing the interests of medical marijuana patients.”

ASA points out that recent changes to city ordinances are being held over the heads of these pot shops before the ordinances have even gone into effect. They aren’t even giving the shops a chance to come into compliance.
