Yesterday, NUGGETRY News reported that San Francisco planned to restart their permitting process. However, today San Francisco city officials determined that they would indefinitely be suspending the city’s marijuana dispensary licensing program. This was announced today by the Department of Public Health.
Earlier this week, the city had decided to resume the processing of back-issued permits after the Pack v. Long Beach case was taken over by the Supreme Court. A spokesperson for the San Francisco City Attorney announced that they would begin issuing permits until a decision was handed down by the Supreme Court.
That decision was reversed, and all permits ar eon hold until the city can “receive assurance that it is in compliance with federal and state law.”
