The Pacifica Planning Commission on September 17 approved the first retail cannabis dispensary resulting from the recent lottery that allows for six recreational pot dispensaries in the city, but this dispensary has chosen to dispense medical pot only, at least for now. The new dispensary, called The Phog Center, will open at a 641-square-foot commercial space at 2270 Palmetto Avenue, across from the Sharp Park Library.
