S.D. Mayor proposes rules for Marijuana Dispensaries

SAN DIEGO — Mayor Bob Filner is proposing an ordinance to allow medical marijuana dispensaries to operate in commercial and industrial areas for a $5,000 annual permit fee and a 2 percent city tax on sales.
In addition, the proposal calls for dispensaries to be at least 600 feet away from K-12 schools, public parks, child care facilities, playgrounds and other dispensaries. There isn’t a distance requirement from churches, libraries and youth-serving facilities — restrictions that were included in a failed 2011 ordinance.
Filner also included a ban on pot vending machines, which received local attention earlier this month when Medbox Inc. announced it was taking deposits in San Diego on its automated dispensing machines in anticipation of a new ordinance. The mayor said he didn’t want them to be a distraction to getting an ordinance in place.
Filner, who has been working with medical marijuana advocates on the ordinance since January, said he’s hoping the proposal finds middle ground between the competing interests of neighborhood safety and safe access to the drug.
“That’s the emotional thing, otherwise this wouldn’t be a problem,” Filner said. “How do you guarantee access to those who need it on humanitarian grounds but protect against problems that we know arise, whether it’s access to children or intrusion on neighborhood quality of life?”
