The Porterville City Council again dealt with the issue of what exactly defines wholly-locally owned as far as awarding the third cannabis dispensary in the city is concerned.
The issue came up during the council’s meeting on Tuesday. It was reported at Tuesday’s meeting all three candidates being considered for the city’s third cannabis dispensary meet the criteria of wholly-locally owned as established by the council.
But there were still concerns expressed at Tuesday’s meeting about how the city has conducted the process to determine someone who’s wholly-locally owned to be awarded the cannabis dispensary. And representatives for Bloom Farms were again at Tuesday’s meeting to state they’ve really been the only wholly-locally owned applicant through the entire process and should be awarded the third cannabis dispensary.
Two people who regularly attend council meetings, Horowitz Jewelry owner David Horowitz, and Rae Dean Strawn also stated their support for Bloom Farms to be awarded the cannabis dispensary.
Bloom Farms along with Main Street Apothecary and Uncle Green are the three candidates being considered for the dispensary. At its meeting on Tuesday, the council approved setting a meeting for 6 p.m. Monday, October 24 to interview the candidates and the meeting will be open

A slice of Wonderland popped up Sept. 1 in White Rock when 420 TeaTime opened its doors. Located in the former Pig + Fig Café space at 35 Rover Blvd., Suite G, TeaTime has been transformed into a Wonderland-themed tearoom and cannabis dispensary that also caters to those who prefer their pastries and beverages cannabis-free. It’s designed to be a place to hang out in a fun environment for imbibers and abstainers alike.
“I’ve always dreamed about owning a business,” owner Christa Tyler said. “In October 2021 when I learned that Los Alamos County was going to allow dispensaries, I got to work on a business plan. By May, I had investors. I opened Sept. 1. Everything is coming together, and business has been steady.”
Tyler’s parents were nervous at first, but now they’re fully onboard, she said.
