SEBASTOPOL, Calif. (AP) - A medical marijuana dispensary owner is riding high after being named mayor of a Northern California city.

Sebastopol's City Council selected 36-year-old Robert Jacob as mayor earlier this week. Jacob runs two pot clinics in Sonoma County and officials believe he's the first dispensary owner in the nation to serve as a mayor.

Jacob has been on the City Council for two years, and most recently was vice mayor. He's worked to create statewide dispensary regulations.

Americans for Safe Access, which advocates for safe and legal access to therapeutic cannabis, called Jacob's selection as mayor historic and unprecedented.
