Fullerton Pot Dispensary Shut Down By Officials

FULLERTON (CBS) — Officials shut down a medical marijuana dispensary in Fullerton on Friday after receiving numerous complaints.

The Green Parrot dispensary was about 300-feet from Raymond Elementary School, Fullerton police Sgt. Andrew Goodrich said.

An investigation began in May and the business was partially shut down July 7.

The owner, 21-year-old Derek Gonzalaez, was cited for operating without a permit, not having a business license, and operating 600-feet from a school, Goodrich said.

Medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal in Fullerton as they have not been zoned by city officials.
