San Diego Recreational Marijuana

A little about San Diego and its local cannabis industry

San Diego is one many beautiful coastal cities off the Pacific Ocean in Southern California. It is about 120 miles south of Los Angeles and takes about two or three hours depending on traffic which usually sucks especially Friday. It is also a gateway to Mexico as the city is part of the San Diego–Tijuana transborder crossing. San Diego has also recently approved local marijuana cultivation and the overall supply chain of all cannabis products being sold on either a recreational or medical basis. People voted for this primarily so San Diego would not have to get their marijuana from other sources within California. The San Diego local council vote happened after Prop 64 passed in California which made marijuana legal for sale if you are over 21, much like booze.

What was the first recorded use of medical marijuana?

Marijuana provides relief from many acute and chronic illnesses. Cannabis was first used medicinally as an anesthetic by a Chinese surgeon by the name of Hua Toa about two thousand years ago. In contemporary times, a few medical conditions that can be helped with marijuana are cancer, AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, sport injuries, work injuries, car accidents, gastrointestinal issues, spasmatic disorders, headaches, migraines, pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and anorexia to name just a few.

When did California vote to make cannabis legal for recreational purposes and what are the new laws for recreational marijuana?

During the general elections in November 2016, California voters adopted Prop 64 which legalized growing, transporting, distributing, and delivery of recreational marijuana under the guidance of certain regulations. Prop 64 allows an individual above 21 years of age to posses up to 28.5 grams of weed and grow 6 cannabis plants. Both the growing and consumption of marijuana must be done in a private residence out of public eye. Setting up a huge marijuana grow site next to a school or church is probably not a good idea and is sure to cause some issues for the cannabis grower as buds mature and the pungent smell of weed is present.

Now that Proposition 64 made marijuana legal, what does this mean for San Diego?

The city of San Diego, California has had a pretty big medical marijuana industry. With Prop 64 now in place, it is projected to be one of the top cities for the California cannabis industry. Individuals aged 21 years and above can partake in recreational cannabis without the need for a medical marijuana recommendation. It will take some time for the tax money on cannabis to roll in for the state and county. Before issuing these cannabis dispensary licenses for either retail and/or grow operations, city officials will probably come out with county level regulations such as zoning regulations that give the city of San Diego the ability to limit spots for the allowed sale of marijuana in the city. San Diego is projected to have local county marijuana-related measures that will include rules on where and how to cultivate marijuana, zoning regulations for marijuana dispensaries, rules for cannabis delivery services, and where the consumption of marijuana can take place to name a few.

The benefits of Prop 64 on the city of San Diego is enormous. Both commercial and private property owner’s value of real estate will increase as investors will break into the cannabis market. It will be up to the owners to decide if they will let Prop 64 be a beneficial factor. Marijuana is still federally controlled substance and proceeds from cannabis sales are not technically not allowed to be a part of our federal banking systems. In order to accomplish success the city of San Diego will have a committee of experts who will structure regulations for the new recreational marijuana. Though the marijuana is legalized in San Diego, the city council has put strict rules and regulations for cannabis cultivation and delivery. The local city council has recently

How old do you have to be to obtain recreational marijuana in San Diego?

The city council has proposed a ban on harvesting marijuana indoors. They are proposing that cannabis grow operations will need to be outdoor, off the grid locations. The planning and zoning commission will set measures that will ensure the regulations for cannabis dispensaries selling recreational marijuana. There will also be planning and zoning laws for marijuana delivery dispensaries. The city is also banning the public use of cannabis including measures for legal consequences of violators. The city goal is to keep marijuana out of the hands of those under age 21, who don’t hold a medical marijuana recommendation from a physician. Local city officials put a 45 day moratorium on cannabis in San Diego which bans the use of recreational marijuana. The goal is to make sure there is strict and safe usage of cannabis in the city.

    Hi,I suffer from depression and am wondering if CDB Oil can help me. I’ve heard it helps people with anxiety but I do not have anxiety… Have studies shown it helps people with depression specifically. Any information you have on CDB Oil helping depression will be a huge help to me.Recently a friend gave my 80 year old father a small bottle of 550 MG CBD Oil to help him with some chemo side effects. My father does not want it so he gave it to me as he knows I have restless legs at night with tiny little muscle spasms like little fireworks going off in both lower legs from the knee down when I lay down to go to sleep at night.The bottle I have is small, like the 1.5″ tall with an eye dropper on the top. I think it says it is 16ml but its hard to read the type is so small. Anyway, if I want to try it for depression how many drops of this should I take each day? What time of day? Do I put it under my tongue or on top of my tongue? How long do I hold it there before I swallow?

    I have been reading posts about the smart meter and the affects on others. I too am experiencing ringing in my ears, headaches, fatigue and my husband gets unexplained headaches. The smart meter is mounted on the wall outside our family room and we sit in the room watching tv and me on the internet less than 12 feet from it on a nightly basis.Tonight (Dec 2) the ringing in my ears got so bad I called SDGE about 6 p.m. and complained. The girls answering the phones sounded like they were reading scripts prepared for these calls. I was hysterical as the ringing increased. Finally through the tears and threatening to take a baseball bat to the meter and taking it off my home, SDGE had a representative call me and they changed out my meter with another newer smart meter. The ringing is still there but it got a bit quieter.I couldn’t sit in my own home without being uncomfortable. While talking to SDGE on the phone I had to flee my own home. I went to my husbands work in tears. The further I got from the house the quieter it got. We went back to the home and a technician met us there to install a new meter.I want the meter off my home. After reading other posts, I am certain that this is what it is. I can’t sit at my computer for extended lengths of time anymore without the ringing. Does anyone know a law in California that says we have to have them? One of the ladies on the phone (I went through two and had to hang up on one and call back because she was so scripted it was like talking to a machine.) says it was California law that we had to have these smart meters. I am ready to get a generator and get off the meter. If anyone would like to contact me and compare notes you can email me at rdavis5 at cox dot net and I’ll give you my private email and we can exchange information. I am ready to become a local advocate for the removal of these meters. Robinp.s. The ringing is there right now but not screaming at me. I am taking Lipo-Flavanoid (just 24 hours now) that my doctor recommended and purchased it at Walmart. It seems to work when I’m not at home but even that doesn’t help the ringing when at home.

    Don’t be afraid. If you don’t stand up to the bullies, they win.

    Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

    My father never felt the need to wrap himself in anybody’s mantle. He never felt the need to pretend to be anybody else. This is their administration. This is their war. If they can’t stand on their own two feet, well, they’re no Ronald Reagans, that’s for sure.
