Pot dispensary opens in Galt despite city's law to forbid it

Despite a city law forbidding its operation, a medical marijuana dispensary opened in downtown Galt.

In July 2009, the city passed an ordinance outlawing any building or location where someone gives or sells medical marijuana to two or more patients with identification cards or primary caregivers.

Still, the collective quietly opened last Tuesday in a nondescript building at 520 Lincoln Way, near the Galt Post Office.

Customers who meet the state's requirements for medicinal marijuana can have their prescriptions filled at the Galt Health & Wellness Center. A security guard watches over the small clinic and patients must have their orders processed by an employee shielded by bulletproof glass before they are allowed to enter a locked room where the marijuana is stored.

"Fifty to 75 people have signed up since we opened last Tuesday," said Katrina Mora, an employee at the center. "We have more and more signing up every day."

The dispensary is a nonprofit collective, meaning growers sell cannabis to the dispensary which in turn sells it on consignment to patients with a prescription for medical marijuana. The four employees who work at the dispensary are compensated, and it also raises enough money for rent and insurance.

City Attorney Steve Rudolph met with Attorney George Mull, who is representing the dispensary, on Thursday and asked him to shut down immediately, but the dispensary is still operating.

Since the dispensary is a co-op, it did not have to apply for a business license, because technically they are not selling anything, City Manager Jason Behrmann said.

The city found out when the collective filed paperwork with the finance department last Tuesday saying they were in operation, he said.

Galt plans to file a temporary restraining order today, and Behrmann hopes a court will consider shutting down the collective by the end of the week.

"They came in and opened up," Behrmann said. "They caught us off guard."

If the city tries to shut down the dispensary, Mull said the dispensary plans to fight it in court. He regrets that his client did not approach the city before opening, but now they would like to work with the city to come up with reasonable regulations.

"Cities have the right to look after their interests … It's a very small place, good security, very healthy product. Anything anyone is concerned about, we've addressed," Mull said.

Patients at the clinic must sign a code of conduct limiting them to one visit per day and barring them from selling or distributing their medication to others or bringing recording devices such as cameras or cell phones into the building. The clinic reserves the right to terminate the membership of anyone who doesn't follow its rules.

The clinic also caps how much an individual can purchase each day. The largest amount of marijuana someone can purchase is an ounce, but Mora said she hadn't seen anyone purchase that much yet.

"Most of it is grams and eighths," she said.

The store sells a variety of strains of marijuana, as well as pre-rolled joints, hash oil and edibles such as cookies and brownies. The edible items are available to make it easier on those who aren't able to or don't like to inhale smoke, Mora said.

More inventory arrives every Friday, she said.

However, not everyone is pleased the dispensary is operating.

"My biggest issue is that is against city ordinance," said Pam Cuevas, owner of Galt In N' Out Smog Inc. "I had to go through five years of red tape to build this building and open up."

The dispensary doesn't benefit the community in any way, she said. While there have not been any problems with additional crime in the area since the dispensary opened up, Cuevas said, the police have been over there regularly.

"I think they are trying to get them to close the doors," she said.

Also pending is a court case that both the city and the collective are monitoring. The case, Qualified Patients Association v. City of Anaheim, is before the 4th District Court of Appeal and could decide whether local cities and agencies can ban medicinal marijuana dispensaries.

Behrmann said that around the state pot shops are opening up and then waiting for the ruling from the court.

"These people are well aware of it," he said.

Mull said the members of the collective were ready to open the dispensary, and it was not tied to the court case.

He said Galt's ordinance is more restrictive than other cities because it bans someone from distributing marijuana to two people. Mull hopes the city will be willing to sit down and talk about the collective's future.

"I would hope they wouldn't waste the resources. There already is so much fiscal stress on cities, especially when there is no downside," he said. "I'm not sure what they are trying to protect people from."

    ...Branch of the National Institute of Drug Abuse stated "We have done a number of clinical papers reporting on marijuana users. In the past we have reported cognitive abnormalities, and a paper in 2005 reported vascular (blood vessels) abnormalities." To state that marijuana has killed zero people in 5000 years is an example of colossal ignorance of the facts.

    Marijuana has also been shown to raise the risk factors for heart attack and stroke, as reported by U.S. News and World Report in 2008. Dr. Kenneth Mukamal, Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School stated " It has negative effects on heart rates, and may even trigger heart attacks".

    This according to the "National Institute on Drug Abuse" reprinted by the "Missouri Dept. of Mental Health" Fact Sheet: "Marijuana smoke has been found to contain more cancer causing agents than is found in tobacco smoke. Examination of human lung tissue that has been exposed to marijuana smoke over a long period of time in a laboratory showed cellular changes called metaplasia that are considered precancerous. In laboratory tests, the tars from marijuana smoke have produced tumors when applied to animal skin. These studies suggest that it is likely that marijuana will cause cancer if used for a number of years."

    Edumacation, the intriguing thing to me regarding this study, is where did they get the 14 year old kids to participate in a lengthy study regarding the long term effects of marijuana use? Could you imagine that occurring here in the US? Were they orphans? But then again, the Germans have somewhat of a history of performing experiments on their fellow man.

    Cogito This all sounds familiar. Didn't they claim that heroin was medicine to help you quit the opium habit? Ah yes. Okay lets call it medicine...I think gin was originally medicine for the stomach and wine was supposed to be for communion. Maybe you have to already be psycho to try this stuff? The big issue is driving. A wacked out moron sucking on a water pipe drving a big rig during commuter traffic on 99. If they get in an accident, how will you ever know if it was because they were high today or last week. There is no breathalyzer test for pot. I see higher auto insurance premiums. Can you imagine flying at 35,000 feet in a jumbo jet with all, the pilots zonked out and eating brownies and smoking dope. It okay and legal if they ever had a headache or menstrual cramps. LOL I can see the news reports now. 400 people killed from plane crash due to pilot having hallucinations and trying to land on the water.Not impressed with the logic.

    Reverend Doobie- I don't use aspirin so I don't care about regulation. I just want you to be responsible for your own chemo, radiation therapy and hospice care. Do the dope (why do you think they call it dope?) and pay your own way to the Farmville of your choice.

  • posted at 6:19 am on Wed, May 26, 2010.


    ReverendDoobie I never said that Cannabis caused cancer. I said smoking anything that burns carbon is inhaled deeply into the lungs --like pot ---will cause heat damage (that why they invented the water pipe) as well as carcinogenic byproducts of burning cannabis. The American Cancer Society does not recommend smoking anything. One study showed that light, occasional smoking of a joint showed no cause effect relationship with cancer of the lung, but cancers of the bladder, kidney and testes increased markedly.So I guess you are saying smoking dope infequently, you "only" increase risk of kidney bladder an nut cancer. As you smoke more, you are more risk for a primary cancer lesion in the lung. When that metastatizes to your brain and other organs you can now smoke all the dope you want to kill the pain from the cancer you gave yourself!I would be for pot use, as long as you paid tax on it so I don't have to take care of you in a hospice as you wait for the big Doobie in the sky and huff and puff all you want.

    Looks to me like "edumacation" needs a real edumacation. . ."Smoking anything causes lung cancer so smoking dope can frequently do damage to the lungs."Only one major flaw in your misinformed argument - Cannabis *prevents* cancer, and even kills certain kinds of head/neck cancers. . .Fact: Aspirin kills 500-1000 people *every year*Fact: Cannabis has killed exactly 0 (zero) people in 5,000 years.Which should be more regulated? Perhaps the one that kills people?

    malcomkyle- The 4th largest crop in California is cannabis. Prices remain high. The drug is so plentiful that the medi-pot experiement serves to advertise and promote medicinal uses.Under Calfornia medi-pot laws, licensed medical pot users are allowed to grow pot for personal medication. Cannabis potency has also increased from 3-4% in the 70's to 25% today.There are hundreds of legal or state sanctioned pot growers.Garbageville, California has so much dope in the air, you can get high by driving through town on the freeway. Don't stop to buy a pizza, there might be too much oregano in it. Heroin ILLEGAL FELONY - low price high quality---and children users.Medical pot is legal under state law with state medical-pot farms...and potency has increased as well as its price. Pot- semi-legal (cops don't care), medium demand, high availability, high quality, high prices.Heroin- ILLEGAL, high demand ONLY from addicts, high availability, highest quality, lowest prices in history.Explain!

    malcomkyle- Explain this!W.H.O. found the export of opium from Afganistan INCREASED since 911.Street prices of heroin dropped to a record low of today. As the supply increased so did the purity. From 4% purity before the war to 80% purity today. The recent gang drug wars in Mexico are partly because Mexican heroin is now competing with heroin from the Middle East.Market competition promoted quality and smuggling increases as prices drop lower and lower!Heroin WAS injected because of the low potency. Today, at 80% quality and at record low prices it is sprinkled in cigarettes or marijuana and smoked or snorted instead of injected. There are no dirty needles to worry about. HEROIN is now cheaper than pot or tobacco! Ask any smoker! In 2009, more than 3,000 died from Heroin overdose because of the high potency.The Ollie Norths of the world and the DEA are no longer the middlemen.Why is the market increasing? The average age for first use of heroin use has dropped to 11-12 years old. The drug is addicting and using has increased.

    The war on drugs is a tale of a once great and free nation which fell down a rat hole into a fantasy world riddled with peculiar and dystopian logic. No amount of money, police powers, weaponry, wishful thinking or pseudo-science will make our streets safe again; only an end to prohibition can do that. How much longer are we willing to foolishly risk our own survival by continuing to ignore the obvious, historically confirmed solution? For those of you who are still living in some strange parallel universe, one where prohibition actually works, may I suggest that you return to high school economics class, and learn about supply and DEMAND. Learn that you cannot up DEMAND simply by upping supply. Contrary to popular held superstition, drugs are not PUSHED, the drug dealers are filling a DEMAND not creating one. The DEMAND is here in the US and is impossible to control, but what is possible to control, is the income from that DEMAND. All we have to do is allow legal businesses to meet that DEMAND. Under proper regulation drug use will not rise, as it couldn't get any worse than it is at present.

Crack, meth, heroin and booze. That's ok cuase the white boys prefer those addictive means?

    All I can say is wow. You people are lame. For years I have taken care of sick people. People with Ms, Cancer, Parkinson disease and among other illness. I watch my patients suffer I watch them struggle day to day. It’s incredibly sad. I medicate them with much harsher drugs! Drugs that help but kill you at the same time! In my eyes pot is a much better drug than lupron or other medications! If its medically necessary and the patient wants it than let them have it in peace. Its there life there decision. Just like when they take other medications that are worse! Until you have something seriously wrong with you please shut your mouth. And as for bashing Katrina saying shame on her? Shame on you! If this was an illegal operation in anyway it would of already been shut down. People really need to get there facts straight especially when they don’t have a clue what is really going on.

    Here's an idea...why dont all of you complainers go onto the Megans Law web site and see how many sex offenders live in your neighborhood, that way you have a ligitimate reason to complain! Are you serious? Some sound a little "anxious" to me...if you like, I can refer you to my Dr. Instead of looking at the negative, why not see the positve? I have seen the benefits first hand when my daughter had to recover from a serious and very painful operation. She's in her late 20s, and owns a successful business (may I add that these days, that is to be respected since so many are failing to keep the doors open), she chose to smoke instead of taking heavy pain medication. It worked for her and I have been for it since then. One thing that we can agree on as parents...regardless of how old your kids are, you don't want to see them suffer. Thanks to pot, I didnt have to. Bottom line...unless you know the facts your comments are based on ignorance!

    lodivice, you left yourself open in your rant on T&C, there`s a big difference between wanting to get loaded and a need to get loaded, I had problems with my gut, to get relief I took a little pill every 6 hours, worked great. Granted both are narcotics, but the pill every 6 hours beets the hell out of sucking your brains out every couple of hours. I am no one to pass judgement, especially at 2 AM. Take a pill and go back to sleep and no pain, works for me.

    I could go to a doctor, though just like judge shopping , I might have to shop around to find one that would issue me a get loaded card. If I say I`m hurting, there isn`t a doctor or test that can prove I`m not. Not all the CT scans, Endoscopy, X-rays, blood tests, pee in a cup test and a million others can tell a doctor that I`m not, and I need to get loaded in order to get relief, every two hours. That took allot of nerve to open a pot house when a city ordinance won`t allow it, though it could be gone tomorrow. No need to break into the house of weed with all it`s security, just wait until the buyer comes out and rob him/her. If the house of weed is allowed to remain, a tax will have to be worked out, better still get it from the kid on the corner and cut out the middle man and tax. Who loves `ya baby, Garberville does.

    I don't see what all the fuss is about. There is more illegal (non-medicinal) pot around at low prices so I doubt if the doper-dirtbags who use the drug illegally will want to pay the higher price and be around people who actually have medical need for the drug. The main problem I see is not the drug or the business, its the route of administration. Smoking anything causes lung cancer so smoking dope can frequently do damage to the lungs. The marijuana coffee or tea is understandable, but not the joints, blunts or water pipes. This dope paraphernalia is so dirt-bag and detracts from the medi-pot argument.

    Well said Verity. Pot is a crutch and medical dispensaries are just an excuse for potheads to stay high legally. It's an addiction too. Sure, those with chronic whatever will find temporary relief, and pretty soon they will have to smoke more and more to find it. And then how do they feel once they come off the high? Irritable? Moody? Combative? Hostile? Violent? Don't kid yourselves re: pot. It's an addiction that costs, and who ends up paying are the innocent hard working people - families are destroyed, lives are ruined. Ask anyone who has watched a loved one addicted to pot and worse.....it's no day at the beach. All pot clinics should be shut down and pot should remain illegal.

    Here is how EASY it is for POT SMOKERS to get a Calif POT Medical Card so they can get high as much as they want:A document signed by a California licensed health provider stating your qualifying diagnosis. This document needs to be less than 12 months old, unless you have a permanent condition (ex: HIV or MS). A simple note from your doctor stating your medical condition is sufficient. This note does not need to mention cannabis - that's our job. Prior medicinal marijuana recommendations do not qualify. A recommendation from Rainbow Cannabis can NOT be provided without appropriate verification your diagnosis. We rely on your documentation to maintain our low fees.http://cannabisdoc.com/"A simple note from your doctor stating your medical condition is sufficient.." hOW absurb IS THAT?"

What a joke! This is just a way for people to GET HIGH Legally and go over to your apt for a (Smoke-Out)!Pot should be STRICTLY regulated by the government and only thru tight MEDICAL documentation and Drug testing and Criminal records check, be allowed to go to a LICENSED pharmacy that already regulates Narcotic drugs.

Why do you think their own friends and council members let them off so cheap on their $50 million share of the pollution-contamination lawsuit? And why haven't they even made an effort to clean up the contamination on the property they are presently on? Same goes with Mayor Katzakian and the Lodi Printing property. That property sits vacant Katz should be forced to pay to have the contamination removed. Why doesn't the Sentinel ever write any articles concerning corruption like this? They're afraid. Why are they afraid to hire an investigative reporter to expose the corruption rather than hiding it?

    Well, one trip to Wal Mart in Lodi will show you there's more dopers there than any med MJ dispensary ever dreamed of having come through the doors. It is not pot though. Its meth and oxycontin killing the community, killing any motivation, any hope of a future. But, thats what our government wants, a brain dead society that will elect people like Obama to actively take away everything you ever worked for, and give it to the entitled and illegals. Wake up folks, and choose some good battles.

    So Selmers...you are in favor of personal attacks, ridicule, and disparaging comments? As a private business, the Lodi News Sentinel has every right to expect civil discourse in the comments section.

    I see Nazism is alive and well at lodinews.com! I am referring to the NOTE FROM EDITOR. Freedom of speech, as long as you say what we like, or you're banned! This is the garbage that is shaping our culture to look like it supports immoral issues when in fact, it doesn't. But how are we to know when we don't have a voice? Shame on you, lodinews!
