    City’s plan to uproot illegal pot shops is a slow, arduous process

    Even with a new city medical marijuana ordinance in place and applications pending for licensed cooperatives in the Peninsula, a number of pre-existing, unlicensed dispensaries continue to fly under the radar. Weedmap online lists about a half-dozen cooperatives currently operating in the Point Loma-Ocean Beach area, including Cloud 9 Co Op on West Point Loma Boulevard, Point Loma Patients Association on Rosecrans and Lytton streets, Starbuds Inc. on Midway Drive, Happy High Herbs on Newport Avenue, Happy Head Foot Reflexology and Massage - Sports Arena on Midway Drive and Super Max on Newport Avenue. A matter of continuing frustration for local residents and legislators alike, District 2 City Councilman Ed Harris said recently that of 63 illegal medical dispensaries operating citywide, 17 are in the beach areas he represents. Harris said shutting down unpermitted medical-marijuana dispensaries is not an easy task, however. “Closing down illegally operating medical marijuana dispensaries is time consuming and often involves months of litigation,” he said.  “There is a great deal of money to be made in this business, and often dispensary owners do whatever they can to remain open. That said, I am confident the City Attorney’s Office will get all of these shut down.” Meanwhile, Harris said, “I have asked city staff to report on their efforts to close down these dispensaries during the Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Council Committee meeting on [Thursday] Sept. 18 in order to make the process more open and transparent to the public.” Neighborhood Code Enforcement and the City Attorney’s Office are actively working to close illegal dispensary storefronts.  “The San Diego Police Department’s (SDPD’s) Drug Abatement Response Team (DART) and narcotic teams work with the city attorney’s Code Enforcement Unit and city code inspectors to address illegal medical marijuana dispensaries in the city of San Diego operating in violation of zoning laws,” said SDPD media services spokesman Lt. Kevin Mayer. “Once an illegal dispensary has been identified, code inspectors contact the dispensary operator and property owner, notifying them they are illegally operating.  If the dispensary refuses to close down, a civil injunction can be obtained.  If the dispensary continues to operate after the injunction is obtained, the SDPD will assist in enforcing the court order. Members of the community are encouraged to contact the police department if they believe a business is operating illegally.”  It’s been 17 years since California’s Compassionate Use Act was approved by state voters and legitimized medical-marijuana use. The city’s new dispensary ordinance, passed earlier this year, amends the land-development code and the local coastal program to add medical marijuana consumer cooperatives as a new, separately regulated land use. Problems with enforcing regulations governing medical marijuana dispensaries include overlapping state and federal jurisdictions. The process has also taken so long that many residents are unsure of what the rules are exactly and where — and to whom — they apply. “I thought the cooperatives were zoned out of OB,” said Denny Knox, executive director of the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association, the community’s business improvement district.  “Didn’t the City Council designate just a few places to have pot shops and OB wasn’t on the list?” “The last time we had pot stores in OB, we ended up with seven of them — pretty overwhelming,” said Knox.“It wasn’t the best of situations.  We only have one legitimate pharmacy, and then we needed seven pot stores?  It seemed odd at best. “People don’t like to believe that lots of pot stores lead to other drug availability in the neighborhood,” she said. “That was definitely our experience.  The stores also brought a lot of travelers into town looking to get high at the beach. There seemed to be a lot of drug activity in the alleys when all the pot stores were open.  There were lots of cars driving in the alleys getting packages from individuals standing behind buildings. Sort of like a drive-thru, but not.”  Pro-marijuana dispensary spokesman Eugene Davidovich of the  Alliance for Responsible Medicinal Access (ARMA) characterized the notion that medical marijuana patients are drug addicts as “ignorant, insulting and flies in the face of much evidence to the contrary.” Saying the claim that cannabis has medicinal benefits for relief of symptoms like tremors, seizures and nausea “is simply no longer in dispute,” Davidovich said. “What we need now is to ensure San Diego patients are able to go to well-regulated cooperatives for their medicine.  “Because there are currently no licensed cooperatives in the city, patients have no choice but to go to an unlicensed shop,” he said. “This issue underscores exactly why ARMA advocates for good, sensible regulations. Once there are licensed cooperatives in the city, there will be no more need for patients to go to the unlicensed facilities.” Davidovich said cooperatives that are compliant with the new, strict laws will be great neighbors “both because of the rules and the level of difficulty and investment needed to secure a permit. These will not be fly-by-night operations, rather they will more resemble pharmacies and will not be unwelcome in their communities. “ARMA urges the public to embrace the process and regulations that will result in well-operated, licensed dispensaries as the best hope for seeing the less-scrupulous operators close up shop, either by city code enforcement action or by virtue of the fact that permitted cooperatives have a market advantage,” said Davidovich. “Research has shown that regulations help to protect safe, responsible access for patients to their medicine and reduce crime and complaints in neighborhoods.” APPLICANTS FOR LEGAL DISPENSARIES CONTINUE TO LINE UP FOR APPROVAL IN MIDWAY DISTRICT There are presently 38 applications citywide for new proposed legally permitted medical-marijuana dispensaries under a new ordinance adopted earlier this year. That ordinance allows conditional approval for a maximum of four dispensaries in any of the nine City Council districts, said Edith Gutierrez of the city’s Development Services Department.  Of those legal dispensary applications, 18 — or nearly half — are in City Council District 2, which includes the beach areas from Point Loma and Ocean Beach north to Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. There are no applications in districts 1 , 4, 5 and 9. Council District 3 (Gloria) has two applicants, District 6 has nine, District 7 has four and District 8 has five. “Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis,” said Gutierrez. The new city ordinance allows medical marijuana dispensaries in industrially zoned areas. They are not allowed within 1,000 feet of churches, public parks, schools, child-care centers, city libraries, minor-oriented facilities, residential-care facilities or other medical-marijuana consumer cooperatives. An initial deposit of $8,000 is required by the city of all marijuana medical-dispensary applicants. In 1996, California voters passed Proposition 215, making it the first state in the union to allow for the medical use of marijuana. Since then, 19 more states and the District of Columbia have enacted similar laws. In two states, Colorado and Washington, the sale and possession of marijuana is legal for both medical and recreational use. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the federal government has a right to regulate and criminalize cannabis. Also, if the cannabis is called “medical cannabis,” the federal law still has priority. At the federal level, marijuana remains classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act. Schedule I substances are considered to have a high potential for dependency and no accepted medical use, making distribution of marijuana a federal offense. In October 2009, the Obama administration sent a memo to federal prosecutors encouraging them not to prosecute people who distribute marijuana for medical purposes in accordance with state law.

    After years of inaction, authorities are finally going after an abandoned remodel on Plum Street on a corner lot in Point Loma. “I filed criminally against the owner of the perpetual remodel at 1676 Plum St. (at the corner of Lowell Street),” said Danna W. Nicholas, deputy city attorney for the city. A total of seven misdemeanor counts have been filed in San Diego Superior Court against the property’s owner, Francisco Mendiola. The counts all carry a sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, if pursued to the maximum extent. Charges against Mendiola include maintaining a construction fence and storing materials on the street, as well as maintaining steel for a retaining wall and stairs on the public right-of-way in front of the property without a public right-of-way encroachment agreement, in violation of the San Diego Municipal Code. The seven counts also in-clude allowing the existence of a vacant structure that created a public nuisance. It’s also alleged that the defendant unlawfully failed to obtain a new building permit within 90 calendar days from the date of a written notice from the city. “[Mendiola] didn’t diligently pursue the work to completion,” states the court case against him. “He also did not remove and demolish the building and structure within 180 calendar days from the date of written notice from the city, as required.” District 2 City Councilman Ed Harris and his staff recently met with city Code Enforcement and the City Attorney’s Office to inquire about the abandoned remodel on Plum Street and two others located at 4544 Alhambra St. and a house off Cañon and Valemont streets. Attempts to contact Mendiola were unsuccessful. It is believed Mendiola lives in Mexico. However, the news was welcomed by Plum Street neighbor Jerry Lohla, who’s been complaining for years to the Peninsula Community Planning Board and others about the injustice of the continued presence of a huge abandoned remodel in his neighborhood’s midst. “[Mendiola] got the building permit in 2007 and he was supposed to be finished in 18 months, and here we are,” said Lohla, adding nothing’s been done at all to improve the property for four years. “He was given a notice of violation by the city to finish the house or demolish it.” Lohla said part of the problem with abandoned remodels stems from a loophole in exiting city rules. “There are very lenient development regulations for remodels,” he said. “Unlike new construction, where the design has to be vetted through the city Development Services and the community planning board, when you buy an existing house you don’t have to do any of that.” Since it’s assumed with remodels that you’re just going to be “changing a wall here or there,” Lohla said that allows developers the wiggle room to “buy existing houses to circumvent the thorough review process for new construction.” Lohla said that in theory, remodels are required to keep at least 50 percent of the home’s studs and incorporate them into the new structure. But in practice, he said that often results in “a complete redo of a home, virtually turning it into new construction.” Lohla organized a petition drive to spur action against the abandoned Plum remodel project, in which he garnered about 100 signatures from neighbors. “I went down to City Council and publicly spoke about it in March this year,” he said. Of the fate of the Plum Street dwelling, Lohla said he and his neighbors “are willing to have the house completed.” But he warned that would likely be cost-prohibitive given the 7-digit expense that he said has already gone into redeveloping the home. “I don’t think anyone could get any profit out of it or even get their money back,” Lohla said. “We’d much prefer to see the house demolished.” Lohla cautioned that terminating the Plum Street abandoned remodel could continue to be time consuming, given the owner’s history of legal delaying tactics, which have allowed him to string out development of this property and others he reportedly owns elsewhere in San Diego, including La Jolla. All the properties have reportedly been started and then abandoned. In any event, Lohla said he and his neighbors are prepared to launch a publicity campaign to do whatever it takes to get the abandoned Plum Street remodel remedied one way or another, once and for all.

    One of the many benefits of living in Ocean Beach is the presence of alternative healthcare — and at a reasonable price. This is also true of San Diego at large. “A trend in medicine in general,” according to Donald Phillips, a faculty member of Pacific School of Oriental Medicine, “is toward integrative healthcare that pairs Western medicine with alternative health-care practitioners.” While some practitioners offer private room sessions with their low-cost services, others provide a community-style space where clients receive treatment together. Obecian Mercy Baron has experienced this community-style setting. “When you are all in one room, it makes it easier for the facilitator to check on how everyone is doing, rather than going from room to room,” said Baron. “Everyone is very quiet because they want you to relax, and some even fall asleep. Even when the acupuncturist is doing their thing, they talk quietly, almost in a whisper.” Whether you prefer a private or community setting, there are several options to explore. • ACUSPORT HEALTH CENTER Aquilino Soriano said his clinic does have set prices and that he will personally work with people on a sliding scale or payment plan. He said he also believes in the barter system and is open to discussing what people have to offer in exchange for treatment. “I want to help as many people as I can,” he said. “There’s a definite need and I want to fill that void when I can, whether it’s seniors, unemployed, single moms and so forth.” • 1804 Cable St., (619) 243-5109; acusporthealth.com. • BEACH COMMUNITY ACUPUNCTURE “Since we opened in 2009, we’ve been offering $20 acupuncture treatments for everyone, every day, for five years — a total of 45,000 treatments,” said owner Nicole Murray. “We are also a member clinic of the multi-stakeholder cooperative organization called the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture. The most recent survey of member clinics showed that we collectively provided more than 900,000 treatments in 2013. We are excited to be a part of the growing movement for low-cost alternative healthcare.” She said her clinic provides a community setting with “eight reclining chairs and a lovely, bright, friendly space. Acupuncture is most effective when prescribed more frequently. It’s common to have people come multiple times a week, or even daily, to see a significant change in the condition. The more affordable fee makes this possible for more people.” • 4993 Niagara Ave., Suite 206, (619) 224-2442, beachacu.com. • THE BALANCED BEAR Laura Pallesen, who owns The Balanced Bear chiropractic office in Ocean Beach, wants her services to be accessible. “I offer great prices and memberships, usually better than what people pay with insurance,” she said. On Mondays and Thursdays, Pallesen volunteers for the nonprofit Alternative Healing Network, where she provides treatments on a sliding scale. • 4966 Santa Monica Ave., Suite H, (619) 567-7005, thebalancedbear.com. • ALTERNATIVE HEALING NETWORK AND THE ADAMS AVENUE INTEGRATIVE HEALTH CENTER The Alternative Healing Network, which was founded by Ryan Altman, offers a variety of integrative services that combine Western and Eastern treatment modalities. In addition to the Adams Avenue Integrative Health Center, it has a center in La Mesa. The network has free community outreach clinics and offers sliding-scale treatments for the entire family in a community-style environment. • 3239 Adams Ave., (619) 546-5326, althealnet.org. • PACIFIC COLLEGE OF ORIENTAL MEDICINE “Our faculty have 10- to 20-plus years of experience, and students come from a variety of backgrounds, often with skills beyond that which is taught at PCOM,” said Phillips. “Students and faculty have resources available to them that may be cost prohibitive in private practice. The cost of treatment at PCOM is moderate compared to privately licensed acupuncturists, which usually charge $60 and above.” Philips said clients have two choices “between a student intern with an assistant or two and a supervisor with whom they consult or a licensed practitioner with a team of students assisting them. Because this is a learning environment, students will be present at all treatments.” PCOM uses a community-room environment with curtains to create semi-private space, according to Philips. • 7445 Mission Valley Road, Suite 105, (619) 574-6932; www.pacificcollege.edu.

    ROOM TO ROAM: SeaWorld plans to double size of orca environment

    SeaWorld’s answer to animal-rights activists’ charges that its killer-whale exhibit is commercial exploitation came Aug. 15 as the marine-mammal park announced plans to nearly double the size of its existing San Diego orca environment. SeaWorld San Diego is to be the first of three SeaWorld parks to engage in the “Blue World Project,” which calls for the construction of a 10-million-gallon tank environment that is set to open to the public in 2018. Park officials said the 50-foot-deep exhibit with a 1.5-acre surface area is expected to give park guests more access to viewing killer whales underwater and would allow the animals increased engagement with park experts. Plans for the tanks also include a “fast-water current,” which would allow the orcas to swim against moving water. “Through up-close and personal encounters, the new environment will transform how visitors experience killer whales,’” said SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. president/ CEO Jim Atchison in a statement. “Our guests will be able to walk alongside the whales as if they were at the shore, watch them interact at the depths found in the ocean or get a birds-eye view from above.’’ SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. has also pledged $10 million in matching funds for killer-whale research and plans a ”multi-million dollar partnership” to focus on ocean health, officials said. The research includes projects to understand killer whales’ hearing ranges and gain information into their nutritional status and reproduction. “For 50 years, SeaWorld has transformed how the world views marine life. The unprecedented access to marine mammals that our parks provide has increased our knowledge of the ocean and inspired generations,” Atchison said. “Our new killer-whale homes and research initiatives have just as bold a vision: to advance the global understanding of these animals, to educate and to inspire conservation efforts to protect killer whales in the wild.” Not everyone was thrilled by the news of SeaWorld’s orca-tank expansion. Martha Sullivan, a volunteer community organizer who’s been actively lobbying for the retirement of SeaWorld orcas, said SeaWorld’s decision is all about the marine park’s bottom line — not altruism. “SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. reported revenues in 2013 of $2.4 billion,” said Sullivan. “The $10 million included in its ‘Blue World’ pitch for supposed ‘research’ to benefit wild orcas is 0.004 percent of their revenue. Big deal. No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea,” said Sullivan, quoting legendary underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau. Sullivan claimed that, of 137 orcas captured in the wild since 1961, 13 remain alive (three in San Diego), with an average lifespan of four years in captivity.  “One of the three survivors here in San Diego, Corky, is the longest-held orca in captivity in the world, at 45 years this Dec. 11,” she wrote. “Kasatka and Ulises, the other two wild-caught orca survivors in San Diego, have been in captivity for 35 years.  When do these performing animals get to retire?  “SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. is willing to spend several hundreds of millions of dollars to double the surface area of its orca tank in San Diego and add 15 feet of depth to the new half of it and subject the orca and other animals held nearby to the tremendous disruption of major construction over three years,” Sullivan concluded. “SWE Inc.’s priorities are very clear.” SeaWorld has taken a number of hits — both financially and in terms of public relations — in recent months. Animal-rights activists continue to regularly picket the park, protesting against orca captivity. Point Loma activist Alana Coons and others are petitioning the City Council to ask it to direct SeaWorld to only use fireworks alternatives for their nightly summer shows.
 In the wording of an online petition drive protesting SeaWorld’s pyrotechnics displays, Coons claims, “SeaWorld is damaging the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of San Diegans who live within a 20-mile radius on a nightly basis every day for three months straight … The fireworks at SeaWorld constitute animal cruelty … We are asking the San Diego City Council to ban the fireworks at SeaWorld and ask them to switch to laser-light shows, which are kinder to animals and the environment and show a courteous and decent neighborly behavior to San Diegans.” SeaWorld’s stock has also reportedly dropped 33 percent recently because of declining attendance. In March, a controversial bill designed to ban orca shows in California was introduced, but an Assembly committee delayed action on it to conduct further study.
