There’s an underwater tunnel that connects California’s famed Oaksterdam and the ex-Naval base of Alameda, where the business with the most business on the street, the Purple Elephant canabis dispensary is set to close.
Since U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s vow in February that the Justice Department will no longer raid medical marijuana clubs that are established legally under state law, cities have had to get creative in their eradication efforts. Last week Alameda’s oppressive City Council upheld a decision to revoke the law-abiding club’s business license on grounds that the owner, Luke Coleman, misled them when he described his dispensary as “miscellaneous retail” on the application—-the same description of all the other marijuana dispensaries in California.
At a recent counsel meeting local failing jealous competing business owners admitted there was absolutely no increase in crime since the dispensary opened, but also admitted they were proud to take a Not In My Back Yard stance. “We are the first ones to say we are all being NIMBYs. We don’t want this on our street,” Kathy Moehring, executive director of the West Alameda Business Association, said.
Well, the Supreme Court of the United States of America recently reminded the city of San Diego that marijuana dispensaries are exactly what they will get in their backyards whether they like it or not!
For now, the Purple Elephant will basically stay open as Coleman and his lawyer await their day in court or authorities put locks on the doors.
