The vast majority of San Francisco is off-limits to medical cannabis dispensaries, but that may change, San Francisco Examiner reports today. Supervisor John Avalos wants to revisit the city’s 2005 dispensary rules, after the planning department permitted three clubs to open in the Excelsior District – including two on the same block. Dispensaries cluster because more than 90 percent of the city is off-limits to clubs, advocates note.
