Federal crackdown on MMJ creating havoc in the community.
Federal crackdown on pot dispensaries now causing job loss, the loss of safe places for queer folks, and the loss of affordable meds.
The Market Street Coop, a San Francisco Institution, is the latest victim in the Federal Governments crackdown on medical marijuana dispensaries. Along with affordable meds for those suffering from medical related ailments, The Market Street Coop has also provided “information and free health services to our membership, by donating to community and non-profit organizations, and our commitment to a mission of helping our community, humanity, animals, and the planet.” The loss of this dispensary will also result in the loss of jobs. Also some people in California have stated they will not vote for Obama again because of this crackdown on medicinal marijuana.
The Market Street Coop sits on a block where blight is common, and closing it may result in more business loss.
