Another Cannabis-Related Business Reportedly Opens in Pacifica

Details are scarce about the new location, but the business has set up a website and a Craigslist ad.


Something that may be a cannabis dispensary or resource center opened for business in Pacifica on March 3.

At least, according to a Craigslist ad, it did.

The business, called the Cannabis Wellness Center, has a fully operational website, which states that it is "a non-profit organization aimed to provide a safe and compassionate environment for patients to obtain their cannabis medicine set forth under California laws and rights" and "is a medical cannabis collective organized to serve patients from the Pacifica coast to the Greater Bay Area."

The Craigslist ad states that although the shop opened on March 3, its grand opening will happen on April 20, a day observed by marijuana enthusiasts each year.

"Stop by and visit the 'Nation's first accessible collective open to the public,'" states the ad. "Light snacks, live entertainment and activities will be provided."

Nowhere on the website or the Craiglist ad does it tell where, exactly, the shop is, and WeedMaps, which shows the location of dispensaries throughout the country, shows no such shop in Pacifica.

A planner at the Pacifica Planning Department said she didn't know anything about the shop, and referred Pacifica Patch to the city Finance Department, which handles business licenses. An representative there seemed doubtful about the shop's existence, but said she'd look into it.

The Cannabis Wellness Center has been contacted via email, but has not yet responded.

Last year, a cannabis dispensary on Palmetto Avenue opened after filling out a business license application pretending as a flower shop.

It was when then Mayor Mary Ann Nihart, Chief Jim Tasa, a Boardmember and City Manager Stephen Rhodes knocked on its door during one of Nihart's "Mayor's Walks", during which she spoke to local business owners about issues they wanted to bring to her attention.

The shop was shut down, and the city council to reopen.

I visited the new center on Palmetto, and they are not selling cannabis. they have shirts and posters for sale and will be providing cannabis recommendations for patients. I wish them the best of luck.

They provide a great service for medical marijuana patients. Fast delivery, and convenient. They test all of there cannabis (most don't) to make sure it is safe. In my opinion, only uneducated people would be against this. It's taking it of the street and provides a safe place for patients to get there MEDICINE!!
