DISTRICT ATTORNEY James Fox's claim that local governments cannot
regulate medical marijuana dispensaries is nonsensical (Medical pot
advocates speak up," 9/5). There is absolutely nothing in state law
preventing cities and counties from regulating medical marijuana
dispensaries, and cities all over the state -- including San Francisco
and Oakland -- have been doing so for some time, with no complaints
from Sacramento.

It's truly scary that San Mateo's top law enforcement official is so
