PSTARSR. What kind of comparison is that? The Vid store there was popular and doing good business about 10 years ago. C'mon. And you're proud of the fact that your place of employment has zero parking spaces? Let's hear how that works for you. All employees ride bicycles or ride the bus to work?

no I am not proud of working for a place with no parking spaces, I think its ridiculous. But in no way is it anyone else's poor decision other than the business owner that chose that location. What is this "auto-snark" response thing? I was giving reasonable responses to questions in this thread, no where was I being snarky.

yes you read that correctly. The store fronts have already been chosen. This is for other aspects of retail MJ, "for Indoor Cultivation, Manufacturing, Distribution, Testing, and Retail-Delivery Only". These places will not sell directly to the public, ( other than delivery ) and will not have a "store front" in anyway.

I was told that the Derf's at Mission & de la Vina and the old video store behind it were going to be a Pot Shop. ANYONE who has driven that intersection knows that adding a lot of left-turning eastward-traveling people on Mission to the usual mix of anxious rushing traffic will be a potential nightmare.

I bet they said that about a movie rental store being there also, Its up to the business owner to pick the right location for a business. I dont know why parking is always brought up like the city will deny a permit because you didnt get enough parking spots. I currently work for a business that has 0 ( zero ) parking spaces.
