  1. DCist is covering the DC medical marijuana issue: “Two Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Pass ANC Muster With Little Fanfare” http://dcist.com/2012/05/two_medical_marijuana_dispensaries.php .

    Truxton Circle’s opposition is mentioned: “Two other ANCs where dispensaries have applied to locate—one in Ward 4, the other in Ward 5—have until the end of the month to forward their comments to the Department of Health before any final determinations are made on licenses.

    The Ward 5 dispensary, located along North Capitol Street in Truxton Circle, has already provoked community opposition—earlier this month the Bates Area Civic Association passed a resolution opposing the dispensary, saying that the area around it is already saturated with social service agencies and regularly sees crime. A proposed dispensary in Takoma has similarly drawn concerns.

    Both ANC 5C and ANC 4B will meet toward the end of the month to consider those applications.
