Good news for concerned citizens of Claremont: the city has stamped out the last smoking embers of marijuana. From the Claremont Courier:
The medical marijuana dispensary, located at the 600 block of S. Indian Hill Boulevard, will not be re-opening its doors for business any time soon. On Thursday, a Los Angeles Supreme Court judge in Pomona ruled in favor of the city of Claremont by issuing a preliminary injunction against Darrell Kruse, owner and operator of the dispensary.Overlooking the bigger issue here, namely the continuing tension between state and federal law, I think we can all take comfort in the elimination of this threat to Claremont's youth. No doubt, now that CANNABIS (Claremont All-Natural Nutrition Aids Buyers Information Service) has been closed, there will be no other means for the young and restless to access cannabis. We can all rest easy again.
The injunction requires Mr. Kruse to shut down his business until after a trial is held deciding whether to enforce the injunction permanently. That will not likely be held until sometime in fall, said Jeffrey Dunn, an attorney with Best, Best & Krieger who represents the city of Claremont.
