The Largest Flower Selection by Dispensary/Region

A fire damaged an abandoned Chula Vista building early Thursday, two days after police shut down an illegal marijuana dispensary at the site.
The fire was reported around 6 a.m. at the building on Broadway near Moss Street. When firefighters arrived they found smoke coming from the roof. After forcing their way inside, crews had to make their way through a maze of walls to find the “seat of the fire,” Chula Vista Battalion Chief Darrel Roberts told OnScene TV. He said the building didn’t have a traditional layout.
“It was very compartmentalized,” he said.
Roberts said fighting a fire in a building that isn’t up to code poses additional risks to firefighters.
“Buildings like this are firefighter killers,” he said, explaining that firefighters in low visibility run into walls in unexpected places. “It puts our firefighters in danger. It creates a new hazard and it is difficult because we have a lot of these in the city.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation but it is considered suspicious in nature.

Police officers on Tuesday had served a search warrant at the dispensary, seizing $1 million in cannabis products and $10,000 in cash. Two loaded handguns also were confiscated. No arrests were made but police intend to forward a report to the District Attorney’s Office, which will determine if a criminal case will be filed against the business owners.
Police believe the dispensary was operating for a little more than a year before it was shut down, according to Chula Vista police Lt. Dan Peak.
Just hours after the fire, Chula Vista police served a warrant at another illegal dispensary, this one on Broadway near Arizona Street, about a block away. Officers seized about $15,000 in cash and $500,000 worth of cannabis products. One handgun was also recovered, police said.

Many factors go into choosing a cannabis dispensary. And there are many good reasons to visit a small dispensary: Budtenders are more likely to know their product really well for one. Location and value also come into play. But at some point, selection plays a role in deciding which dispensary to visit. And since it’s an objective means of comparison, we decided to have a go at ranking San Diego County dispensaries on this factor alone.
