Grow weed on site, court tells marijuana dispensaries

A California Court of Appeals decided that cities can’t ban medical marijuana dispensaries — but dispensaries must restrict sales to pot grown on site.

From the LA Times:

The unanimous decision by a three-judge Court of Appeal panel in Santa Ana was the first in the state to prohibit cities from enacting zoning restrictions that effectively ban all marijuana dispensaries. The court was also the first to rule that dispensaries must grow the marijuana they sell, a requirement that would force most of them out of business.

    “The decision conflicted with other appellate court rulings on medical marijuana, and attorneys in the case said they expected the California Supreme Court would agree to hear an appeal…The state high court has agreed to review a handful of lower court rulings on medical marijuana, but a ruling may be at least a year away.”

    “I don’t see how you can grow in a tiny, rented space enough pot for over 1,000 customers,” Dunn said.

    Right. How about road-side stands? Grow and sell it like tomatoes, corn or basil.

    Think of the marketing potential–Estate grown pot. Wineries kill for such a designation.

    As I read the decision, it said that the medicine must be produced by the collective or coop, it implied onsite, but never said so in plain terms. So the way it seems to play out is only cannabis from collective members can be sold…grown on site or not.

    I cant wait for next year when all of these cases are heard by the CA supreme Court.

    For some it is medicine. For some it is a sacrament. For some it is a happy recreational herb.

    Doctors wrote prescriptions for medicinal alcohol by the thousands during the Prohibition. Do you just choose to ignore this fact, “High Finance?”

    have a peaceful day,

    “And alcohol was no more a medicine then than pot is today Bill.”

    Alcohol is a potentiator, it makes the effects of other drugs stronger. That’s why its in NyQuil and other medicines. So that you can get the same or greater affects with less drug.

    High Finance, as usual, your statement is more about what you personally believe than anything to do with FACTS.

    “1928 Prescription for Alcohol (During Prohibition)”

    “The 18th Amendment to the American Constitution outlawed the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors, except for medicinal purposes. This “Temperance Act” required a written prescription from a physician in order to obtain liquor. Offered here is a special federal prescription form (6″ x 7″) for liquor that was filled out by a physician and signed by a pharmacist in 1928. The prescription calls for “spirits fermenti 8 oz 1/2 oz 3 times a day.” Perhaps this “patient” had a raspy voice? The word “VOID” has been punched into the form, signifying that the order had been filled. This is an interesting piece from our prohibition days.”

    HiFi, Marijuana IS medicine.

    (7) Consumers Union recommends that those now serving prison terms for possession of or sharing marijuana be set free, and that such marijuana offenses be expunged from all legal records. It is hard to think of a more dramatic way to demonstrate this country’s earnest desire to bridge the generation gap and to right grievous miscarriages of justice. Respect for law will surely increase.

    This by the Consumers Union 1972!

    Isn’t it about time! Nearly 40 years!
