There are two different groups applying to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Duboce Triangle. One potential location is 258 Noe Street. Here, applicants are hoping to open a patient-owned and run cooperative that sells a number of alternative medicine services including medical marijuana and other herbal remedies called WIN Wellness Center. WIN stands for Wellness is Now. 2323 Market Street is the site of the other proposed location.
There are a number of obstacles for both locations. For one thing, competition is stiff: there are already three medical marijuana dispensaries within walking distance of the Duboce Triangle. Second, both sites are within 1000 feet of a school, which is a no-no. Lastly, neither applicant has submitted proposals to any governing departments yet, most likely because they know it will be an uphill battle. The word is that both applicant groups are looking around for other locations in the neighborhood.
