Justice Department Closes Two More S.F. Medical Marijuana DispensariesSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 07/18/2012 - 11:15
The number of medical marijuana dispensaries in San Francisco will dip to a nearly 10-year low on August 1, when two more permitted pot clubs will close under pressure from the federal Justice Department.
Vapor Room, located on Haight Street, and HopeNet, on Ninth Street, will both cease operations at the end of the business day on July 31, representatives from both dispensaries told SF Weekly.
Landlords of both dispensaries received letters from U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag in April, where she warned of property seizures or decades-long prison terms if the dispensaries were not shuttered.
