A Los Angeles man's pot-delivery service in the Monterey Bay town of Capitola is being scrutinized by the city attorney there. The question is whether Capitola Cannabis has a physical location and earns more than $2,000 a year. If the answer is yes, it must register as a business in the city which, apparently, it has not done.
Marc Cohen, a 31-year-old who says he works in real estate in L.A., describes his Capitola business as a nonprofit collective with volunteers and an almost virtual, mobile presence, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel. “No one is on payroll,” he told the paper, adding, “everyone is a patient or a volunteer.”
But one worker told the publication “there is a physical location” in the Monterey Bay town. But she added that the organization would have its lawyer contact the local city attorney's office and “work with them.”
The city attorney, John Barisone, said, “If it's in LA, we don't care,” but that the delivery business in Capitola must comply with city and state rules.
