Medical Marijuana Collectives Raided in MI

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, December, 14th 2011 by THCFinder
Three medical-marijuana businesses in the Traverse City area were raided this afternoon by state narcotics officers.
 
State police executed warrants at two locations of Collective Inc, and at M-22 Collective.
 
A spokesman in Lansing says the businesses are not operating within Michigan's medical marijuana law.
 
That law allows only registered caregivers to sell marijuana to a certain number of patients.
 
Dispensaries in Michigan have operated under the belief that the law also allows patients to sell the drug to other patients, but the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled this summer such businesses are not legal.
 
No one at the dispensaries could be reached for comment.  
 
City officials say there are seven other medical marijuana businesses operating within city limits.

Sacramento County Bans Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, December, 14th 2011 by THCFinder
After months of debate, Sacramento County has brought the hammer down on marijuana dispensaries.
 
The county board of supervisors voted Dec. 6 to update its zoning code to ban any land use that violates federal, state law or both, The Sacramento Bee reported.
 
The county planning commission opposed the move, but Interim Planning Manager Leighann Moffitt last week blamed that decision on "confusion" and concerns.
 
Only seven dispenaries are left open, with two more expected to close soon, Moffitt said.
 
After hearing numerous public comments, the board voted 4-1 to ban dispensaries. Supervisor Phil Serna was the sole dissenting vote, saying the zoning code amendment wouldn't change current county policy.
 
As soon as the item passed, several audience members erupted into protest.

Free Pot with Donation to Marijuana Dispensary Has Stoners Giving Back

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Tue, December, 13th 2011 by THCFinder
Like most medical marijuana dispensaries, Granny Purps in Soquel, CA sometimes struggles with an image problem. While it genuinely believes it’s helping people, pot remains illegal at the federal level and the “stoner” culture often stigmatizes what is otherwise a legitimate operation.
 
However, Granny Purps is trying to redeem itself in the eyes of the public. For the second year in a row, it’s feeding the less-fortunate by offering an unusual trade — one free joint for every six cans of donated food.
 
“It helps feed tons of people,” says Nancy Black, sales manager at Granny Purps. Since the joints usually cost $10 each, which must be paid for out-of-pocket, the program also “helps people who sometimes can’t get their medication on their own.”
 
But good deed or not, some groups won’t accept the food because it comes from a marijuana dispensary and they’re afraid of public backlash. Black says that 12,000 pounds of food was rejected by a local food bank last year, and although Granny Purps was hurt and upset, it had little trouble finding an alternative recipient.
 
“The issue can be a hot potato,” admits Linda Lovelace (no relation to the legendary porn star), operations director for Valley Churches United Missions. Though, she adds that when there’s a real need to feed the hungry, any possible stigma attached to the source of donations becomes less important.
 
“The demand is so high that the food is coming in one door and going out the other as fast as it’s coming in,” she says. “We’re just feeding people.”

Police raid Pomona marijuana dispensary

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, December, 9th 2011 by THCFinder
POMONA -- A SWAT team raided a medical marijuana dispensary Thursday and arrested a Rialto man on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sales, authorities said.
 
Javier Sarabia, 33, was booked at the Pomona Police Department's jail and released later in the day after posting $20,000 bail, according to county booking records.
 
SWAT team members and detectives served a search warrant about 10:45 a.m. at "Natural Remedies," 162 E. First Street, Pomona police Sgt. Duane Leonard said in a written statement.
 
"The search warrant was obtained as the result of a month-long investigation into the illegal sales of marijuana from the location," Leonard said. "The investigation was prompted by complaints from citizens regarding the illegal activity."
 
About a pound of marijuana, cash and weapons were seized during the operation, officials said.
 
"This location is among many other store front marijuana sales locations that have been closed in recent months," Leonard said.

California Marijuana Dispensary Trades Pot for Food to Feed the Hungry

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, December, 8th 2011 by THCFinder
Medical marijuana users are accustomed to the munchies sending them on a hunt for food. Now they have a place where giving their food away can score them some pot.
 
For the second year in a row, one California medical marijuana dispensary is doing its part to feed the hungry by offering their patients a trade: one free joint for every six cans of donated food.
 
"We're in a really controversial industry, and we wanted to show that we're here for good," says Nancy Black, sales manager at the Granny Purps dispensary in Soquel, Calif.
 
The dispensary is running its unique food drive for the second year in a row, trading joints -- Black calls them "pre-rolls"-- for donated food.
 
There is no limit to the number of free joints a single customer can receive.
 
"We've given away 50, 60, pre-rolls at a time to one person for the amount of cans they've brought in," Black said.
 
The response has been huge. The dispensary collected more than 12,000 pounds of food last year and gave away about 2,000 joints. This year, they've collected nearly 5,000 pounds since early November.
 
The food-for-pot exchange not only helps feed the hungry, Black says. Patients also benefit by getting the marijuana they need without paying the usual $10 per joint.
 
"It helps feed tons of people and it helps people who sometimes can't get their medication on their own," Black says. "People have to pay out of pocket for all of their medicine."
