San Bernardino Moves Toward Shutting Out Marijuana Dispensaries Entirely
Looks like unincorporated L.A. County isn't the only place pot shops are feeling unwelcome these days.
San Bernardino County officials are considering a similar ban on marijuana dispensaries in their unincorporated areas. The county Planning Commission will likely vote on the deal Thursday before, er, passing it on to the county's supervisors for final consideration.
Pot shops are virtually shut out in the San Bernardino's cities and towns, so this move would prevent a rush to unincorporated areas.
"Most of our cities and the other surrounding counties have banned dispensaries, and if the county doesn't follow suit, that could create havoc," county spokesman David Wert told the San Bernardino Sun.
If the county approves this, it looks like San Bernardino will be a dry county when it comes to weed.
Unincorporated L.A., Orange and Riverside counties have approved similar measures.
Medical cannabis patients, of course, can always come to the city of L.A.,which still has plenty of dispensaries.
