Left-wing San Francisco turns down pot plans

medical marijuana dispensary (pot)The liberal bastion of San Francisco is being applauded for keeping a medical marijuana dispensary away from children.

In a 9-2 vote on October 3, the Board of Supervisors reversed the approval of a medical marijuana dispensary in the Sunset district.

On behalf of upset parents, Pacific Justice Institute attorney Brad Dacus had filed an appeal after the planning commission approved it 5-1. That vote, he says, ignored local ordinances and state laws.  

Dacus, Brad (PJI)"For one thing, there was a nearby youth center at a church that was going to be directly impacted," he says. "And there was also a Christian preschool that was also near the facility."

San Francisco is famous for flaunting moral codes, including public nudity, until business owners pressed city leaders to crack down on indecency, which predictably upset the city's far-left community.  

Dacus says the reversal should send a spark of hope to anyone with concerns about a marijuana distribution center near their home or church or school.

"The city of San Francisco did the right thing," he continues. "It chose to listen to the parents of their community and not the big marijuana pot pushers and that, even for San Francisco, is something to be applauded."
