Hundreds of marijuana delivery services are operating in San Diego, but their number may soon dip dramatically if current city enforcement trends are any indication.
For months, the city has only allowed permitted marijuana shops to deliver pot, but enforcement has been limited. Then, earlier this month, cops raided a delivery service. If the law is now being enforced, “it means hundreds of unlicensed delivery services currently operating — a listing of many can be found on sites like Weedmaps — will be in the crosshairs of police and may end up consolidating,” our Adriana Heldiz reports in a new story.
Heldiz breaks down the current state of the delivery business and created a map of the eight dispensaries in the city of San Diego that are we’re able to confirm are permitted, operating and offering delivery.
Opinion: How SANDAG Must Fix Itself
In a VOSD commentary, Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey calls for transparency, proper staffing levels and a more open work culture at the scandal-ridden regional planning agency known as SANDAG. Bailey is a member of its board of directors.
Bailey suggests that more management-level staffers beyond just Executive Director Gary Gallegos should go.
“Due to pressure from the public and the SANDAG board, Gallegos announced his resignation from SANDAG effective on Aug. 18. This decision is the right move for the agency and the public. SANDAG must now change its policies, processes and people to rebuild the public trust,” he writes.
