Oceano medical marijuana dispensary rejected
March 7, 2012
After listening to arguments for and against a proposed medical marijuana dispensary in Oceano, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday to reject the facility.
Supervisors said the proposed South Fourth Street location violated the required 1,000-foot minimum distance from a park and also that they were worried about safety issues.
Last fall, the Planning Commission approved Tammy Murray’s plans to open a medical marijuana collective in Oceano. Murray, a resident of Grover Beach, said she planned to have the marijuana provided on a consignment basis by farmers.
Oceano resident Barbara Mann said she appealed that decision two weeks later because of the shops proposed location and safety issues.
Four years ago, supervisors voted to allow medical marijuana facilities in the county. To date, they have rejected all applications.
