A City of Riverside Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Initiative, also known as the Riverside medical marijuana restriction and limitation act, ballot measure will be on the June 2, 2015 election ballot for voters in the city of Riverside in Riverside County, California.

Medical-marijuana advocates began circulating signature petitions in December of 2013, seeking to put an initiative on the ballot that would, if approved, allow several medical marijuana dispensaries to open and operate in the city. The activists had 180 days to collect 12,000 valid signatures in order to qualify their measure for the June 2, 2015 election ballot. After four months of circulation, the group turned in 20,206 signatures, hoping this would be enough to qualify the initiative for the November 2014 election ballot. The county registrar found 13,640 of the signatures to be valid, which is only enough to qualify the initiative for the June 2, 2015 ballot.[1][2]

The "Riverside medical marijuana restriction and limitation act" would allow up to ten medical marijuana dispensaries to open in commercial and industrial zones of the city and would establish rules to regulate the activity of these dispensaries.[1]
