Church Wins in Battle with City and Pot ‘Facility’

Not this time!

There’s a city ordinance in San Diego, California–yes, even in California–that says you can’t set up a “marijuana facility” within 1,000 feet of a school, a playground, or a church. So along comes a bunch of potsters setting up their “facility” practically next door to a church–and demanding that the church should move, it has no right to be there. And the city immediately sprang in to side with the potsters (https://www.wnd.com/2019/05/marijuana-firm-attacks-church-loses-badly/).

We are happy to report that the church’s subsequent lawsuit against the city has been settled with the city totally capitulating, a complete victory for the church. The city will pay all the legal fees and amend its ordinances so that this kind of thing will be less likely to occur in the future.

The potsters falsely claimed the church was “in a flood zone” when it wasn’t, then tried to buy the church, and then got the city to go along with their scheme to build a “marijuana facility” practically next door to the church. (Sorry, but I’m not sure what kind of “facility” it was going to be. It didn’t get built, so probably it doesn’t matter.)

The city settled out of court by way of an unconditional surrender. What were they afraid the judge was going to do, if the case came to trial? Maybe they were looking down the barrel of punitive damages like they never imagined.

Is it just me–or is this campaign to legalize pot coming down from somewhere at the top and has an evil intent?

May the Lord our God defend us.
