SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A local medical marijuana dispensary will soon be shutting its doors after CBS News 8 received a tip that the collective was not only operating without a city permit, but was also renting office space on church property.
For the past three months, the Green Urban medical marijuana dispensary has been open for business at 3054 Fairmount Avenue in City Heights.
In fact, the city of San Diego has not issued any permits to medical marijuana collectives because there is no planning ordinance in place to regulate such businesses.
"God created this whole earth with all the seed-bearing plants and he looked upon it and said, ‘It's all good,'"
said the pastor.
"If it alleviates the suffering; if you've ever seen anybody in late stage cancer; if that's a product that alleviates the suffering, we're all for that," he said.
