Ha ha, funny sign.
Sponsors of a medical marijuana dispensary named the Apothecary Inc. were served a notice of injunction by Pacific Grove City Attorney David Laredo on Wednesday, prohibiting any transfers or sales of marijuana on the property at 115 Central Ave.
Laredo named Daniel Maniscalco, Tamara Mims, Erica Gamecho and Carmen Nazay specifically in the injunction, filed on grounds that the city has declared a moratorium on issuing permits for such dispensaries.
Maniscalco told the council that no marijuana transactions had taken place on the property.
Not Pot Sales (for at least 60 days)
“Dave’s Not Here!”
Monterey has sued the proprietor of a medical marijuana dispensary alleging that the business violated the city’s zoning codes by setting up shop in town last fall.
City officials filed the complaint against MyCaregiver Inc. and director Jhonrico Carrnshimba on Monday, after the City Council voted 4-1 in closed session Feb. 2 to authorize legal action against the clinic, which has been operating at 554 Lighthouse Ave. since November.
Also Feb. 2, the council finalized a 45-day moratorium on medical marijuana clinics, initiated under an emergency ordinance. Council member Jeff Haferman dissented.
Monterey Sues To Stop Pot Shop
“Dave’s Not Here!”
When the city requested more information as to the nature of the business they claim that they were told the business would retail ” various health and beauty products, natural vitamins, aroma therapy products, and instruction books and DVDs.”
“Unfortunately, the information provided to the Planning Division was not complete,” said City Manager Fred Cohn. The city learned through media reports that MyCaregiver was operating as a Medical Marijuana Dispensary.
Monterey is also threatening the building’s owners with a daily fine.

Hey, why should Monterey get all the fun & crime?
Daniel Maniscalco went to the Pacific Grove City Council meeting Wednesday night and presented his plans for a non-profit cooperative during public comments.
The issue was not on the agenda so city council members did not address it but Mayor Carmelita Garcia said it does violate the city’s zoning codes.

Just what they need to bring more crime. Wonder what someone that woke up after a 30 year sleep would think if they just woke up and wanted to visit the Beer Springs for a sip.
The MyCaregiver Co-op Inc. at 554 Lighthouse Ave. began serving a clientele of 45 medical marijuana users in November and membership has since gone to 70, said John Rico, a MyCaregiver director.
He contends MyCaregiver doesn’t need a permit from the city to operate because it is a private club, benefiting only its members, and exempt from the city permit and licensing process.
City Attorney Deborah Mall said a retail sales business license for that address was applied for and granted, “but they didn’t say it was a medical marijuana facility.”
A marijuana facility, she said, “is not a permitted use in any zone of the city.”
