In a historic move, Torrey Holistics (in Sorrento Valley) was granted the first license for recreational retail sales of cannabis in the state of California.
“I think it’s how we conduct our business. We all have professional backgrounds,” owner Tony Hall told the Associated Press. In order to get the license, Torrey Holistics had to submit a 60-page application consisting of a lease, diagrams and detailed business plan.
