An Oakland medical cannabis dispensary raided by the DEA, IRS, and US Marshals last year is down but not out, one of our readers reminds us.
Oaskterdam-affiliated Coffee Shop Blue Sky is operating at 1776 Broadway with a permit from the City of Oakland. The permit was renewed June 10, 2013. As one of our kind readers explains in an email: "Granted, it's a shell of its former self, but it's still a legally permitted dispensary."
Coffee Shop Blue Sky doesn't show up on popular dispensary finder Weedmaps.com. Their last Yelp review is from September 2012. Leading Google results refer readers to raid footage.
Early this week we reported that the new dispensary Magnolia Wellness is now open and erroneously stated that they were the fourth operating dispensary in Oakland. They are actually the fifth if you include Blue Sky.
