The Palm Springs City Council is gave final approval Wednesday to an entrepreneur who plans to open a third medical marijuana dispensary in the city.
Organic Solutions of the Desert at 560 Williams Road was tentatively awarded a permit in June when the council voted to allow a third dispensary.
Jim Camper, the collective’s president, said the official opening was dependent on getting permits.
“I figure, hopefully, (to open in) the beginning of October,” Camper told City News Service.
Eight other people applied for the permit.
A city report found that a third city-sanctioned dispensary would help provide a sufficient number of “reliable and appropriately regulated medical marijuana cannabis cooperatives.”
In March 2009, the council voted to allow two collectives, or cooperatives, in compliance with state law to operate with in the city’s three industrial zones.
Organic Solutions of the Desert is tentatively scheduled to open mid-October.
