San Diego is making swift progress on its plan to have a local supply chain for its marijuana dispensaries, with 15 indoor pot farms and cannabis edible factories slated for final city approvals in coming weeks.
Those businesses will follow the city’s first approved marijuana production facility, a food products factory for Otay Mesa that cleared its final city hurdle last week.
The accelerated progress comes just a few months after leaders of the local marijuana industry expressed concerns that rigorous city environmental approvals and other regulatory hurdles were slowing the process down.
Since then, city officials have become more comfortable with these previously unfamiliar businesses, allowing the city to streamline the environmental approval process and less frequently require expensive greenhouse gas studies.
