San Bernardino bans medical marijuana dispensaries
The Press-Enterprise ^ | September 22, 2009 | CHRIS RICHARD

Posted on 09/23/2009 1:01:36 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

San Bernardino became the latest Inland city to ban medical marijuana dispensaries late Monday.

- The report notes that California's decriminalization conflicts with federal law. Studies by other cities show dispensaries contribute to increases in noise, traffic, burglaries and robberies, the report states.

I am very glad they are closing them down. They are starting to open the dispensaries near schools.

Having a dispensary near a school is in violation of Title IV the Federal Safe Schools Act of 1994 and various state laws that are linked here

I do take back Title IV because there is nothing mentioned there. However, there are states that have the 1000 feet rule. California does have that rule.

A dispensary in general is a violation of Federal law. The Feds are welcome to bust them if they are near a school or miles away from a school.

The question is are these a violation of California law. I haven’t seen anything yet that suggests that.

There is the School Zone Anti-Drug law . If you sell a controlled substance within a 1000 feet of a school you can go to jail

Curious, can you link that law to me? I’ve been searching but I haven’t found it.

I’ve seen a law that doesn’t allow smoking pot within 1000 feet of a school (unless in one’s own residence), but that isn’t exactly the same as selling it.

That being said, I have no problem with making a 1,000 yard buffer for dispensaries. There should also be one for liquor stores (or any place that is allowed to sell alcohol) and bars.

If you sell an controlled substance within or not within 1000 yards of a school you can go to jail. That law is about increased penalties than the penalties themselves (ie you can go to jail for 5 years instead of 2).

They have been outlawed for years.

Yes. That applies to a controlled substance. The sticking point is that under California state law, medical marijuana is no longer a controlled substance but a legal product. Much like Viocdin is a controlled substance if Joe Schome sells it to me but is not if I have a prescription and go to Walgreens and get it.

Under that law a Walgreens within 1,000 feet of a school would not be doing anything illegal.

Under Federal law, a dispensary near a school is illegal. But under Federal law a dispensary not near a school is illegal. Under the law you quoted that would just mean that the Feds could opt for harsher penalties against the dispensary owner if they were closer to a school. Regardless, they could arrest them either way.

If you have plead and bribe a titled nobleman Doctor for permission to obtain a substance, I consider it controlled.

CVS and Rite Aid sell many scheduled substances, just not any taboo Schedule 1 molecules (of Satan).

Sure they do. In fact they dispense tons of them. They are legally licensed to do so. Hydrocodone is a Schedule 3 controlled substance, to name just one.

Or for crooks in Saudi Arabia, cut off a hand.

I knew an welder that stole something and they cut off his right hand handed him a baggie and put him on an airplane out of the country.

They don’t have a large theft problem over there!

Those doctors who do that should be arrested and prosecuted. An aspirin is not a controlled substance.

Vicodin is certainly a drug mentioned on that list. It is a schedule 3 drug.
