To the Pot Clubs: Carry on Then

New, 4 comments

Audible sigh of relief for pot lovers city-wide: Those who operate medical marijuana dispensaries in San Francisco now have until January 21, 2009— the date of the next presidential inauguration— to comply with city permit requirements. Prior to yesterday's Board of Supes meeting, only one dispensary had managed to score the proper operating permits even though other owners had brought their buildings up to code in hopes of doing so, too. The city blamed its own bureaucratic sloth for the delay, thus keeping clubs in danger of The Great Shutter, and their operators in legal Limbo. Gavin has been tussling with the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency since 2007, when DEA agents began threatening property owners who rented to Cannabis clubs. Everyone— to your pipes!
