Napa med marijuana dispensaries ok'd by City

Including personal and semi-emotional testimony from Napa City Councilmembers, the Napa Register reports on last night, Tuesday, Aug 18th's City Council meeting:
After listening to two hours of impassioned testimony about the benefits of medical marijuana, the Napa City Council voted unanimouslyTuesday night to begin the process to allow cannibis clinics.

The city expects to have regulations in place within six to nine months that would permit medical marijuana dispensaries.
Police officials had argued for a two-year ban on such clinics, saying they could become crime magnets because they would have large amounts of cash and marijuana on hand.

Council members acknowledged crime concerns, but said were impressed by well-run dispensaries in other communities and their own personal experiences.
Seems reasonable. What a surprise from the Napa City Council. Other reactions?
