Rainbow marijuana dispensary reportedly operating without compliance

A marijuana dispensary located in Rainbow has been reported to be active without county compliance, and county managers are working to correct the problem.

The dispensary, called Your Highness and located on the 2800 block of Rainbow Valley Blvd., was reported by Rainbow Community Planning Group chair Gary Drake to the county in August. Drake’s attention was drawn when he noticed signs with green crosses and an arrow pointing into a driveway of a nursery in the area.

Drake mentioned to County Planning and Development Group Program manager Joseph Farace that the facility is less than 500 yards from a community church. In addition, the location was not mentioned as a possible dispensary site to the Rainbow Community Planning Group.

“There are no permitted dispensaries in Rainbow,” said Farace. “Planning Development Services (PDS) Code Compliance is aware of the property where a possible facility may be located and is taking the appropriate steps to address the issue.”

Farace also stated that the dispensary is operating on a site that is not allowed to have a medical marijuana collective facility.

“The County ordinance only allows these facilities on industrial properties and apparently this subject site is designed agricultural,” said Farace. “Code Compliance is working with the operator to resolve the issue.”

Currently a moratorium is in place on the issuance of new facilities, however, information on the medical marijuana collective facility ordinance as well as a Frequently Asked Questions sheet is available on the PDS website: www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/pds/Medical-Marijuana-Collectives.html. The website has information on what is needed to operate this type of facility.
