Every medical marijuana dispensary in the city of Oceanside has been permanently closed, according to our media partner North County Times.

City officials declared the last of the dispensaries, North County Collective, was closed this week.

On Monday, signs were posted in the windows of the collective's dispensary at 913 S. Coast Highway address. The note read "permanently closed forever!" and "closed by court order from the city of Oceanside."

Lance Rogers, a lawyer for North County Collective, said the dispensary ran out of money to continue to challenge the city in court. A court settlement is pending under which collective operator John Scandalios has agreed to close for good.

"They (the dispensary operators) took the route that everyone else took in Oceanside ---- it just wasn't fiscally possible anymore," Rogers said.
