Supervisors Ban Pot in Unincorporated San Diego County

Whether for medical or recreational use, pot businesses of any kind are officially unwelcome in unincorporated parts of San Diego County. In a 3 to 2 vote Wednesday, supervisors voted to ban pot grows, collectives, dispensaries and other facilities in unincorporated San Diego. Supervisors Greg Cox and Ron Roberts voted no.

"I think it's really important to remember that marijuana of any kind is illegal under federal law," Board Chairwoman Dianne Jacob said. "There have been comments made by the new administration in Washington that signs may point to action being taken in the near future to support federal law."

There are currently two medical marijuana dispensaries operating in areas that fall under the new ban. They can remain open for another five years, but will then be forced to close.
