Today Is Signature Deadline For Petitioners Opposed To San Diego MMJ Rules

By today opponents of the new medical marijuana regulations in San Diego, California need to turn in more than 31,00 valid signatures to force the city council to revisit their plan to restrict medical cannabis dispensaries to more than 600 feet from residences, schools, churches – basically people of any kind. Under the rules operators are also required to get a permit which will costs thousands to obtain and take up to two years to get.
Opponents of the rules say they are basically a ban on dispensaries, which are allowed under Prop 215, and will be detrimental to patients in San Diego. According to reports, The California Cannabis Coalition had over 40,000 signatures by last weekend.
At this point we can only hope that enough valid signatures were obtained, or else patients in San Diego are going to find access to their medicine severely restricted.
It makes you wonder why patients in the city deserve this kind of treatment.
