Breaking news: Illegal medical marijuana dispensaries closed

Share via email

Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 8, Riverside County Code Enforcement and sheriff's deputies arrived in Idyllwild, obtained enough evidence and closed two medical marijuana dispensaries for violations of land-use codes. One of the dispensaries (top photo) is on the corner of Highway 243 and Pine Crest Avenue. The other is in the Village Lane.

However, shortly after the Country Club Smoke Shop was closed, the violation signs were taken down, the door was open and people were seen going in and out.

    I have a strong opinion on the matter. However politically incorrect opinions are not allowed and humor is not well received among strangers on the Internet, so I am only left with “NO COMMENT” so as not to stirr up mixed feelings and Town Crier censorship of public posts.

  2. Leaves me as the only legal supplier in town.

  3. Sorry to disappoint you, but they are still open. Dispensaries report it was yearly inspection combined with scare tactics. Sorry Town Crier — fake news.

  4. Well how about a readable picture of what the “field notice of violation” states? Interesting that they had these written and printed in the field “after obtaining evidence “

  5. Town crier, I would like to see more news and less bias from your writers. A whole story would be nice. Not the fraction that we got here. A small town with people that like to talk can quickly see what’s really happening. We do not live in boxes. Please change these tactics. Two sides to a coin.

    • This news was breaking as we were getting the paper to the printer. We only had time to report what happened up until that point. Our follow up definitely has other points of view to this issue.

  6. THIS ISNT A BOUTIQUE, GALLERY, OR TRINKET SHOP. IT BRINGS A HARDENED AND ARMED CRIMINAL ELEMENT LIKE NO OTHER. CHANCES ARE THIS SHOPS ENFORCERS ARE HEAVILY ARMED FOR THAT GUN BATTLE IN AND AROUND THE BUILDING.

  8. Why? Credit card machines and bank accounts are off limits to sellers of schedule 1 psychotropic trppic drugs. That means potentially tens of thousands of dollars gathered in any single day by that shop.

  9. These pot shop running gun battles dont use little guns either.

  10. A favorite tactic in south central LA is to park the kids in front of the houses as a deterrent.

  11. Again I say 50 protestors against this shop carrying signs would send a strong message to the county.

  12. When this goes before the board of supervisors a hundred residents should be there in protest against these shops.
