Pot legalization in Colorado and Washington could mean less heat on California's medical marijuana industry.
Among the groups likely counting on such a break, Berkeley Patients Group, who will re-open in a new space in December, according to an email from the city-licensed medical cannabis dispensary today.
"Safe access to quality medical cannabis is back," BPG wrote. "... BPG will be re-opening its doors in December."
According to reports, that location will be 2366 San Pablo Ave., in Berkeley.
Hounded by the feds out of their last storefront in May, the large, well-liked dispensary went delivery-only for the last few months. They've been re-furbishing 2366 San Pablo since August.
U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag closed the club's original storefront with a forfeiture threat to BPG's landlord, part of a year-long crackdown that's turned toward the planet's largest dispensary Harborside Health Center in Oakland.
