October 19, 2013 | Talana Lattimer
Join Us 1:30pm on Monday at SF City Hall Room 400!
Supervisor Avalos and The SF Planning Commission are once again proposing to BAN Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (MCD's) within 500 ft of one another in Outer Mission. This could prevent access in neighborhoods that are already under-served. Demand The Planning Commission conduct a study of the 2005 zoning laws that created so-called “green zones,” areas where it is legal for dispensaries to locate if they obtain city permits. Under the law, whole sections of The City were made off-limits to dispensaries. In allowable areas, they cannot be within 1,000 feet of schools or recreation buildings serving youths. It’s estimated the allowable area comprises 10 percent of The City’s land mass.
