OPINION: Union of Medical Marijuana Patients, Inc. v. City of San Diego (California Coastal Commission)

___ CA5th ___ (Cal. App., 10/14/16)

The Union of Medical Marijuana Patients was unable to convince a California court of appeal that a city ordinance adopting regulations for the establishment and location of medical marijuana consumer cooperatives in San Diego was a project within the meaning of CEQA; thus the city did not need to conduct an environmental analysis before enacting the ordinance.
