Imperial Valley Gets Its First Dispensary

This week, the best dispensary in San Diego, March and Ash, marched into Imperial Valley, to open the county’s first (and only) medical cannabis storefront. Located in the city of Imperial, just north of El Centro, the world-class dispensary borders both Arizona and Mexico.

The site of the annual California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta (formerly the Imperial County Fair,) Imperial is also home to the world’s best active heavyweight boxer, Andy Ruiz Jr.

Far from a knockout, the permit process was a lengthy endeavor for March and Ash.  In the final round, the dispensary was awarded the only permit in Imperial to sell medicinal cannabis.  While a physician’s recommendation is required to purchase cannabis products, you can grab a free recommendation here.

The City of Imperial estimates March and Ash will generate millions in revenue, six percent of which will be taxed by the city.  Additionally, they will be donating one percent of profits to different charities in the area.
