San Jose Approves Tighter Dispensary Regulations, But Doesn't Ban Clubs



The San Jose City Council voted 8-3 last night to pursue tighter regulations on the eighty or so dispensaries in the city. Operators there feared the council would pursue a ban on all dispensaries, but as the meeting stretched late into the night, support for a ban did not bear fruit.

Reports indicate the city council will create buffer zones between dispensaries and sensitive uses, and asked staff to return within 90 days with a “complete” regulation scheme for San Jose’s thriving medical cannabis clubs.

The devil is in the details, we’ll report more when we know.
