Report Illegal Pot Shops

Supervisor Anderson has heard the community’s concerns regarding illegal pot shops and agrees that aggressive enforcement must be implemented. The Board of Supervisors approved county staff to build a framework of what our cannabis ordinances should do and Anderson is working to ensure that any changes include full transparency and community input.


Anderson successfully added $500,000 to the San Diego County Sheriff for immediate and aggressive enforcement on unlicensed, illegal dispensaries, labs or related facilities. Anderson’s efforts also included expanding buffer zones up-to 1,000 feet from critical neighborhood areas such as parks, churches, and daycare centers.
