Riverside County has offered Riverside City Attorney Greg Priamos the job of chief counsel.

Priamos, who has led the fight against medical marijuana dispensaries in the city, has been Riverside’s city attorney since 2001 and is president of the League of California Cities’ City Attorneys Department, according to a report in The Press-Enterprise.

The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote on Priamos’ appointment during a special session next Tuesday at the Riverside County Administrative Center. Should he accept the job, Priamos would be in charge of an office that gives legal advice to more than 40 county departments.

Riverside’s ordinance against marijuana dispensaries became the lead case in the state Supreme Court ruling that said local governments are allowed to prohibit the dispensaries, according to the report.
