    And they're suing...


    http://www.courthousenews.com/2014/08/07/70189.htm

    SAN DIEGO (CN) – Marijuana patients claim in court that San Diego and the California Coastal Commission will foul the air, snarl traffic and force people to grow marijuana indoors, wasting energy and increasing global warming, because of their wrongheaded decision to allow no more than 36 marijuana co-ops in the city.

    The Union of Medical Marijuana Patients sued the Coastal Commission and San Diego on Aug. 1, in San Diego County Court.

    The rather bizarre and quite technical complaint challenges the Coastal Commission’s June 11 approval of a San Diego city ordinance of March 25, which authorized medical marijuana co-ops in the city.

    The zoning-oriented ordinance allows medical marijuana co-ops only in certain industrial and commercial zones, and requires buffer zones between co-ops and residential areas.

    “The ordinance caps the total number of cooperatives at 36 and places a limit of four per Council District,” the Los Angeles-based Union of Medical Marijuana Patients says in the lawsuit. But because of the zoning restrictions, the union says, only 30 pot stores are “even possible” under the law.

    This "extremely restrictive approach" will require "thousands of patients to drive across the City of San Diego to obtain their medicine because cooperatives are only allowed in certain limited places in the city, which will create traffic and air pollution," the lawsuit states.


    (Hence global warming?)

    Lots of pot shops are in the San Diego beach areas. You might be wondering why so many cancer patients seem to live near the beach, especially in beach towns with lots of bars and twenty-something tourists with surf boards. It seems like these cancer patients are all in their twenties, too. Hmmm....

    Sounds to me like they're trying to free the San Diego medical marijuana market from anti-competitive government regulations. Using the California Environmental Quality Act to do it is just singing the song your audience wants to hear. It is California.

    The "reasoning" here is silly. The only time there might be a traffic tie-up near a marijuana "dispensary" is if the police are running a sobriety checkpoint. There are about a half dozen (or more?) marijuana "dispensaries" within 5 miles' radius of my home. I'm entirely in favor of traffic jams thus caused!

    Yeah, I don't look so good, either.

    We live in an interesting area of Silicon Valley. There probably is Section 8 (how appropriate!) housing within that 5 mile radius, and there are probably homes valued at >$2M. Of course Silicon Valley house prices are insane.

    It neither amuses nor pleases me that there are so many magnets for chemically impaired drivers ... not that bars are angelic in that respect.
