San Diego City Council passes medical marijuana collective regulations

SAN DIEGO — KPBS.com reports that San Diego City Council passed regulations regarding medical marijuana collectives following nearly five hours of public comment on March 28.
Hundreds attended the meeting. The original proposal outlawed collectives from operating within 1,000 feet of schools, churches and parks.
Ben Cisneros of Stop the Ban, a group who says the law would impact every collective in San Diego, said the ordinance is a “defacto ban that will close down every medical cannabis facility in the city and will make it virtually impossible to reopen.”
City Council voted to reduce the buffer zone from 1,000 feet to 600, and voted 5 to 2 to enact land-use restrictions and public safety regulations requiring background checks for all employees of collectives.
Councilman Todd Gloria said the rules, though strict, are better than the unregulated status quo.

    Wake up and read a book! Cannabis is one of the healthiest plant proteins in all of the world! Has more protein and Omega 3, 6, and 9 than any flax seed, meat, fish, or plant on this planet! All in ALA and GLA form, the most easily digested by our digestive system! Not to mention vitamin A,D,E,K and most macro and micronutrients! Shut your mouth before you speak of something you know nothing about!
