San Diego Marijuana Stores Face Eviction


SAN DIEGO, Sept. 30 (UPI) — San Diego authorities said a North Park neighborhood building owner agreed to evict medical-marijuana dispensaries and massage parlors.

San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said the owner of the building, at 4009-4010 Park Boulevard, agreed to evict four medical marijuana dispensaries and a dozen massage parlors after authorities determined the businesses were violating zoning laws, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Police said they believe the marijuana businesses were the cause of recent increases in traffic, loitering and public cannabis smoking in the area.

Goldsmith said the building owner agreed to pay $10,000 in civil penalties without admitting liability.
