Apothecarium Squeaks In

Following a contentious meeting with a large turnout of supporters and opponents, the effort by The Apothecarium to open a second marijuana dispensary in the city was approved in early November, just weeks after being delayed by a lack of commissioners at an October meeting (News Briefs, page 3, Marina Times, November 2015). The day before the Planning Commission vote, the Apothecarium put out a call for supporters to come out in force. “We are facing strong opposition from a small community group that is suggesting we’ll be bad for the neighborhood,” the company wrote on its Facebook page. It accused opponents of pulling a “dirty trick” and postponing the vote at the previous meeting.

The November vote could still be appealed. The Apothecarium’s first San Francisco location is in the Castro; the company is also planning a new location across the bay in Berkeley.
