SF Weekly:  “Melinda Haag, the U.S. Attorney for Northern California. Haag cites the park as a reason why medical marijuana dispensary Shambhala Healing Center, four blocks away on Mission Street, must close.  Shambhala would be the sixth San Francisco pot club shuttered by Haag, whose office has shut five dispensaries since November, and the most politically connected: one of Shambhala’s operators is a former candidate for Congress with connections to progressive politicians. . . . On Feb. 21, Haag mailed to property owner Ebrahim Poura of Beverly Hills a form letter that’s arrived in five other dispensary landlords’ mailboxes since Oct. 7, when California’s four federal prosecutors announced a coordinated crackdown on the state’s medical marijuana industry.  The letter gave Poura 45 days to close or risk ‘enhanced penalties’ because of Shambhala’s proxmity to Jose Coronado such as property forfeiture and ‘a penalty of up to 40 years in prison when operating within a prohibited distance of a school, playground, etc.,’ Haag wrote.”
