4/12: Oakland City Council Public Safety Committee Reflects on Medical Cannabis
Sun Apr 10 2005
City of Oakland Looks Back on First Several Months of Dispensary Ordinance
The Oakland City Council Public Safety Committee began to hold hearings on a report by the City Administrator that analyzes the first seven months of Oakland's medical cannabis dispensary ordinance on Tuesday, April 12th, at 7:30 PM at City Hall. In February, 2004 the Oakland City Council passed an ordinance that regulates medical cannabis dispensaries. This ordinance limits the number of clubs in the city to four, bans on-site consumption, and stipulates that dispensaries may only operate between 7am-9pm. Americans for Safe Access and other patient advocates urged supporters to attend and express their dissatisfaction with the current ordinance, in particular the ban on on-site consumption and the city-wide limit of four clubs. People were asked to call their city council member with feedback before the meeting.
