SEBASTOPOL, Calif. (AP) A medical marijuana dispensary owner has been named mayor of a Northern California city.

Sebastopol's City Council selected 36-year-old Robert Jacob as mayor earlier this week. The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1iGZrXL ) Jacob runs two pot clinics in Sonoma County. Americans for Safe Access, which advocates for safe and legal access to therapeutic cannabis, called Jacob's selection as mayor historic and unprecedented.

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