TO's two dispensaries step away from selling recreational pot – VC Star

Thousand Oaks’ two medical cannabis dispensaries have one final step to go in their bid to start selling recreational cannabis.

The City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday night to introduce an ordinance to allow Leaf Dispensary and Legendary Organics to do so.

The ordinance is scheduled to be adopted by the council at its meeting Tuesday. It would amend the city’s existing cannabis regulations. If adopted, it will go into effect 31 days later.

Leaf and Legendary are the only cannabis dispensaries in Thousand Oaks. 

Mike Johnson, Leaf’s director of marketing and sales, said Thursday the introduction of the ordinance has been a long time coming.

“We had hoped that by communicating with the city and providing the necessary information, they would be able to make the judgment that they did,” he said.
