Under new policy, city sues marijuana dispensary
Soon after taking office, Filner had called for the city attorney to stop taking medical dispensaries to court to force their closure. The act was the beginning of a rift between Filner and City Atty. Jan Goldsmith.
Just days after Filner’s Aug. 30 resignation, Acting Mayor Todd Gloria reversed Filner’s hands-off policy toward marijuana dispensaries.
Gloria informed the city’s chief operating officer and assistant chief operating officer that enforcement of zoning violations by pot shops could resume.
This week, the city attorney filed a civil complaint to shut down the Central Wellness Collective on El Cajon Boulevard in the mid-city area. The complaint holds the property owners liable for allowing the dispensary to remain open in defiance of city zoning laws.
