Pot Property Owners Snag Permit Stay

Next up for the Board of Supes: A Chris Daly-proposed, Planning Commission-approved plan granting medical marijuana dispensaries the right to operate without city permits until January 21, 2009, the day following the presidential inauguration. Those in the medical marijuana community (we'll spare us all the lame pothead jokes) say that without this stay of execution, as it were, all but one medical dispensary will be forced to shutter; proprietors need the extra time to tighten up their pot ops according to permit codes. Property owners who rent to pot ops are already feeling the burn— Back in December, the Drug Enforcement Administration came in through the back door, threatening to seize their assets. [SF Examiner]
