Here Are All The Addresses in Cleveland That Applied for a Marijuana Dispensary License

click to enlarge BRIAN SHAMBLEN Before going any further: Let’s stress the headline and reiterate that that no dispensary licenses have yet been awarded in Ohio. Through a public records request with the city of Cleveland, though, we’ve obtained all the addresses that are attached to applications for medical marijuana dispensary licenses. Some will win those licenses, and most will not.

The state has 57 licenses to distribute across Ohio. Statewide, 370 businesses applied for those licenses. It’s expected that the northeast part of the state, including Cuyahoga County, will receive 18 licenses before the medical marijuana law is officially active in September 2018.

Below, you’ll find the addresses attached to applications filed from within the city of Cleveland. All told, 25 businesses filed zoning forms in Cleveland alongside their state license applications; most of them went on to to file state paperwork. (The forms represent a formality in the process, confirming only that the address is not located in a zoned area that prohibits marijuana businesses from setting up shop.)

Second marijuana dispensary OKd for Ceres

A second medical marijuana dispensary for Ceres was approved Monday evening as some members of the City Council are suggesting it is time to put the brakes on future applications.

The council voted 3-1 to approve a medical marijuana dispensary application filed by Mike Reynolds, the same applicant who earlier this year won approval for Ceres’ first and so-far only medical marijuana manufacturing facility.

Under the three-year developer agreement approved on Monday for Kase’s Journey dispensary, Reynolds is allowed to sell medical marijuana at 4030 Farm Supply Drive which is not far from his 22,000-square-foot Kase Manufacturing plant at 4111 Brew Master Drive. The dispensary agreement calls for Reynolds to pay the city a $80,000 fee following the issuance of a marijuana business permit and a monthly fee of $40,000 if the firm earns $500,000 or less in gross receipts that month. The fee rises to $50,000 per month for gross receipts of between $500,001 and $800,000; $75,000 per month for sales of $800,001 to $1.1 million; and $100,000 monthly for sales more than $1,100,001.

The agreement is similar to the one approved in October for Pacafi Cooperative, Inc. to operate a 6,000-square-foot dispensary at 1442 Angie Avenue.

In May the council approved a medical marijuana manufacturing facility for an industrial area in southwest Ceres. The developer agreement for Kase Manufacturing, 4111 Brew Master Drive, calls for the business to pay the city fees of $50,000 per month during the first year. The fee increases to $75,000 per month in the second year and $100,000 per month in the third year. The plant is operational with the first payment to the city to occur on Jan. 2.

Mayor Chris Vierra recused himself from the discussion and voting because he owns property near the site.

South Hemlock cannabis dispensary application 'dead' in Cannon Beach

R.J. Marx/The Daily Astorian

Plans for a retail marijuana dispensary on South Hemlock have been withdrawn.

Buy this photo

CANNON BEACH — One of three cannabis dispensaries planned for Cannon Beach has dropped out.

Daryl Bell, who had planed to open a marijuana shop at 3115 S. Hemlock St., decided recommendations from the Design Review Board were too extensive to pursue.

“The application for 3115 S. Hemlock was denied by the Design Review Board at their Oct. 19 meeting,” City Planner Mark Barnes said Tuesday. “I’ve had no further communication with the applicant, so I assume the project is dead.”

Nancy Benson, operations manager of PPC Holdings, confirmed Bell’s withdrawal.

In Design Review Board hearings earlier this year, Bell had requested approval for major modification to an existing commercial building for the purpose of opening a high-end retail cannabis dispensary.

In August, Bell provided plans for exterior building and landscaping upgrades, but the board asked for a more detailed plan for the property, owned by Limnes Investments LLC.

Bell was granted a continuance and asked to return in October with revised plans. When he failed to appear or submit revisions, his application was rejected.

Bell owns and operates dispensaries in Lincoln, Coos and Tillamook counties.

In 2016, he attempted to open a retail marijuana shop in a condominium complex near Pier 39 in Astoria. The store did not open, however, after the Astoria City Council decided the Planning Commission had not properly considered the residential nature of the site.

Two separate applications for retail cannabis dispensaries remain active in Cannon Beach, Oregrown at 215 S. Hemlock and Five Zero Trees at 140 S. Hemlock.

Two Reissues on the Jazz Dispensary Label Are a Blast from Jazz's Past

Azar Lawrence’s Bridge into the New Age and Pucho and the Latin Soul Brothers’ Jungle Fire!

It’s probably dumb to say that jazz sounds better on vinyl, but it’s not dumb to suggest the format’s reliable limitations perhaps gave recorded jazz some of its power, like a picture frame accentuating its contents. No matter where the musicians go—no matter what black holes and cosmic nebulae their music propels us through—it’s certain that after 20 minutes or so, the needle will hit the dead wax and we’ll be landing back on earth. Perhaps those confines are partly what allowed jazz musicians of the late ’60s and ’70s to enter some very freaky territory, with the knowledge that their explorations would be administered in side-length increments.

Two recent reissues from Jazz Dispensary revisit the exploratory attitudes of an era more than four decades past. Both albums were originally issued on the foundational Prestige label, and continue Jazz Dispensary’s “Top Shelf” series.

The gem of the pair is Azar Lawrence’s Bridge into the New Age, not heard on vinyl since 1974. The record’s a perfectly preserved time capsule: A tie-dye-bedecked Lawrence beams from the album cover, surrounded by charmingly weird imagery in pinks and purples and greens. The music is similarly open-minded and optimistic—the New Age suggested by the title is the mind-and-body spiritual movement that stemmed from the ’60s counterculture, not the synth-driven music genre that later adopted the name.

Lawrence and his sidemen deliver five praiseworthy attempts at summoning ecstasy through sound, with the physicality of their playing buttressed by a mysticism handed down from John and Alice Coltrane. Lawrence’s tenor sax is augmented by dense thickets of Latin percussion and, on the opening and closing tracks, the astral voice of singer Jean Carn, whose

Second marijuana dispensary heads to downtown Lakeview

A second marijuana dispensary is coming to Lakeview. Top Shelf Medicine, located in Bend will be opening up a location in Lakeview next door to Lake Health Medical Supply on F street. 

Owner David Ordonez is excited to bring his business to Lakeview. He has received all of his permits and his goal is to open by February or March, 2018. 

“Councilman Mike Warren first approached me last year at the Bend location, told me I needed to open up a location in Lakeview and actually brought me to Lakeview,” Ordonez said. “My employees didn’t want to move out here, so about three or four months later, Warren approached me again and after talking to my wife and my managers, I decided to do it.” 

Ordonez envisions Lakeview as a place where he can bring in new money and help Lakeview, especially downtown thrive. 

“I used to promote bands and I don’t want to see myself as someone who just owns a dispensary,” Ordonez said. “I really see Lakeview as a town that can thrive and I’m excited to be apart of it.” 

According to their website, Top Shelf Medicine is an organization that’s main focus is helping validly authorized medical marijuana patients receive high-quality, safe access to medicinal marijuana from designated providers. 

“I think I’m going to do well in this town,” Ordonez said. “I want to give to charities, I most recently raised over 2,000 pounds of food for the Food Bank in Bend.” 

Ordonez was grateful for members of Lakeview’s Town Council for giving the necessary forms for his Dispensary and for ensuring that all of his paperwork was in order. 

“Even if they were against the marijuana, they have been really receptive and friendly to me,” Ordonez said. “No matter what people’s opinions of the marijuana
