    BAKERSFIELD, Calif.-Kern County voters have passed a ballot measure that restricts where medical marijuana dispensaries can be located, one of the first such limits to be approved by residents rather than lawmakers.
    In a sign of how the easy availability of marijuana at storefront pot shops has weakened public support for allowing people to use it for health reasons, 69 percent of Kern voters endorsed Measure G on Tuesday.
    The Bakersfield Californian reports ( Kern voters to pot shops: go away and hide - that the law allows dispensaries only to locate on industrial land at least one mile from schools, day care centers, churches, public parks or other marijuana stores.
    The limits don't leave pot collective and cooperatives with many options for where to go and will force nearly every existing shop to move or close, according to The Californian.
