A San Diego court has ruled that marijuana dispensaries are not permitted within the city limits.
“The municipal code does not permit the operation of marijuana dispensaries in any zone in the City of San Diego,” wrote Judge Ronald Prager.
Judge Prager said last week local zoning laws are not preempted by state medical marijuana laws.
“I think it is clear that building owners and dispensaries that don’t voluntarily close their doors will be held accountable for violations of the law,” said City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said in a media release. “We are obligated to enforce the law and we will do so.”
