Marijuana shop near Fullerton school closed
Neighbors of the Green Parrot dispensary complained to Fullerton police that it was operating illegally just yards from Raymond Elementary School in the Orange County suburb, said Fullerton police Lt. Andrew Goodrich.
Goodrich said the Green Parrot, in the 1000 block of East Chapman Boulevard, was investigated by narcotics investigators for a variety of violations, including operating without a permit, no business license and operating within 600 feet of a school.
Green Parrot owner Derek Gonzalez, 21, of Wildomar, Calif., received a citation for the violations.
The city also cited the building owner’s for code violations.
“Marijuana dispensaries, collectives and cooperatives are not allowed to operate within the city of Fullerton," Goodrich said.
