Update: Santee's Neighboring Medical Marijuana Dispensary Faces Closure

Mother Earth Alternative Healing Cooperative near Gillespie Field is given 45 days before eviction can be enforced.

Updated July 25 @ 6 p.m.

San Diego County's only licensed dispensary, with a certificate bearing the seal of the Sheriff's Department proudly displayed on the front counter, is facing eviction from their storefront near Gillespie Field, but has been given another 45 days of operation.

The Mother Earth Alternative Healing Cooperative recently asked the federal court to step in and stop the , but was denied that help on Tuesday. Mother Earth would like to remain in business while the court procedures and appeals happen, otherwise, they say, the dispensary will not come back into operation.

On Wednesady, a bankruptcy judge allowed the dispensary to continue providing medicinal cannabis to clients for 45 more days, after which the eviction notice will come back into affect.

The dispensary, the only in the county, serves 70,000 patients. Opponents say that a storefront dispensary that sells marijuana is not allowed by state law.

@ Joe and John: How was your life impacted by the existence of this dispensary? How will your life be any different when it is gone? It was in an industrial area away from schools, children, churches etc. It had very little, if any signage. They went through all of the proper procedures with the city and Sheriff's Dept. Do you even know where it is?

@ James Jones- The way our society works is to slowly introduce something and become a little more tolerant, which eventually becomes acceptable to sell in every supermarket and retail store. If its a legal drug it needs to be regulated and sold through pharmacies not out of a hole in the wall.

You avoided my question, just as I expected. Thanks for the lesson on, "the way our society works" though !
