Ballot Initiative 59 was passed by a wide margin of voters in 1998 (69%) but was blocked by city lawmakers citing a Congressional ban. The ban was lifted in 2010, followed by the passage of legislation authorizing the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries. The creation of a patient registry and dispensary guidelines are still in the works.
