City's Pot Clubs: High and Dry, End is Nigh?

The California Supreme Court has handed down a new ruling which could spell disaster for the city's weed economy. The unanimous decision states that someone selling marijuana to a patient with doctor's approval can be prosecuted for dealing drugs if they are not a "caregiver" or a member of a patient-run cooperative. The ruling will likely push tokers into the loving arms of those co-ops, which are protected under a separate 2003 state law -- and it could spell disaster for the more skittish retail pot operations around the city. They may not outnumber Starbucks, but they are many.
