The San Diego City Attorney’s Office reported that it obtained court orders to close 10 marijuana dispensaries over the past month that were found to be in violation of zoning ordinances
The city has set specific guidelines for the locations in which marijuana dispensaries can operate legally. None of the closed dispensaries had applied for permits to allow legal operation.
“Marijuana dispensaries, like any other business, must obtain proper permits and conform to zoning regulations,” City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said Thursday. “Our office is working with neighborhoods throughout San Diego to ensure that dispensaries only operate where they are legally allowed to be.”
The following shops were ordered to close between April 2 and May 12:
- The Nugget House, 3717 University Avenue in City Heights
- Paradise Wellness, 2332 Reo Drive in Paradise Hills
- San Diego Cannabis Club, 4706 Ruffner Street in Kearney Mesa
- Coastal ReLeaf OB, 5056 Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach
- The Bakery, 7082 El Cajon Boulevard in Rolando
- Aztec Meds, 6179 University Avenue in Redwood Villages
