San Bernardino, CA. The City Attorney’s Office and the San Bernardino Police Department continue to enforce the ban on medical marijuana dispensaries enacted by the City Council in 2010. Both offices have been working with Attorney Laura Crane of Cota Cole, LLP, who was recently retained to assist the City in taking enforcement action.

The Police Department’s Community Policing Specialists (CPS) Unit has been investigating every dispensary of which they are aware and issuing Administrative Civil Penalties (ACPs) that impose a fine of up to $1,000.00 per day on the operators of dispensaries and on the landlords of the properties. Despite the issuance of ACPs and the accruing fines, several dispensaries are still in operation, posing an extremely serious threat to the health and safety of the City’s residents.
