Despite Recent Raids Oakland Medical Marijuana Still Growing
Regardless of the recent blunt force federal attack on medicinal marijuana shops and last week’s raid on Oaksterdam College, it seems the four groups approved recently to spread the 420 love of medical pot shops in Concord still would like to get in to the medicinal marijuana business.
The Concord Community Collective is continuing to move forward to spread out at 2101 Broadway by mid-to-late summer time, member Scott Hawkins stated.
Another three marijuana growers groups that seek to obtain permits possess the added burden of finding new locations following the city nixed their suggested sites to be too near to schools or parks.
Many medical cannabis industry experts asked if individuals groups would follow-through, considering that federal government bodies in recent several weeks have closed a large number of shops and threatened to get the home of the land lords.
However, at the time of Oaksterdam’s growing marijuana problem, Tidewater Patients Group told Assistant City Administrator Arturo Sanchez that they are still searching for a viable site, Sanchez stated a week ago. Also, he stated leaders with G8 Medical Alliance Corporation had mentioned him prior to the Oaksterdam raid they too have been searching at sites to the seed the area with more marijuana dispensary. Neither group has came back telephone calls now, nor has Shaun Wilcox, whose Agramed cooperative also received a permit. Wilcox had stated prior to the Oaksterdam raid he wished to locate near an appropriate place to open a weed seed dispensary in Concord.
