Pot Club Ban In San Francisco Stems From Typo

A typo in San Francisco’s medical cannabis code gives the city’s planning department a way to impose a de facto ban on all dispensaries, officials realized Friday.

Under the current code, home daycare centers can count as schools — and there are so many home daycares in the city that most of the 25 clubs in existence could effectively be zoned out, as San Francisco requires a mandatory 1,000-foot buffer between dispensaries and schools.

The San Francisco medical cannabis task force moved to fix the typo in its first meeting of 2011, requesting the Board of Supervisors amend the city’s code by one single letter.
