Anaheim Completes Dispensary Purge By Closing Last Eleven Dispensaries


closed anaheim dispensaries medical marijuanaThe last of Anaheim’s medical marijuana dispensaries closed it’s doors at 1pm on Friday- or did they?

Under a recent ruling by the California Supreme Court local communities can shutter the distribution centers operating within their city limits by declaring them public nuisances. Anaheim, and nearby Garden Grove, have both issued letters eliminating all of their facilities.

Anaheim has up to 140 distribution centers at one time. Per a report from KABC in Orange County, the city had shut all but eleven prior to Friday by using zoning ordinances and code enforcement.

The remaining dispensaries had been ordered to close their doors or face  a fine of up to $1,000 per day. 10 of the 11 had closed by the deadline, and authorities were reportedly investigating the single remaining facility.

Michigan has seen the same type of tactic employed to shut down medical marijuana storefront operations. Mobile delivery services are emerging from Anaheim’s shuttered centers as businesspersons still try to service their patients in a legally-compliant way.
