Anaheim Pulls Plug In Effort To Eliminate Medical Marijuana Shops That Open Illegally In City

Now under a new state law, “gray market” marijuana providers must get state retail licenses or close their doors.

CALIFORNIA:  Anaheim is literally pulling the plug on pot shops that keep popping up despite a law forbidding the businesses.

Officials have used its operation of utilities to cut off water and power to dispensaries in the city that’s home to Disneyland, the Orange County Register reported Tuesday.

Nine shops closed last month and eight others will likely shut down by the end of the week, Anaheim spokeswoman Ruth Ruiz said. Another 11 will soon be ordered to close or lose their water and power.

“It’s worked so far, but if we find that they are still operating, then we will find a way to shut down these businesses,” Ruiz said.
