Employees of San Luis Obispo County cannabis business Natural Healing Center are calling on the San Luis Obispo City Council to reverse staff’s decision to revoke the company’s permit — blocking its ability to open up shop in town.
The workers plan to hold a rally at 5 p.m. Tuesday outside City Hall.
The protest comes after the city determined Natural Healing Center’s founder submitted false information regarding illegal activity to San Luis Obispo officials in the permitting application.
In a news release, Natural Health Center (NHC) said the city is “making the wrong decision,” adding that that the company has “gone to incredible lengths and sacrifice to create a one-of-a-kind environmentally sustainable operation for our employees, customers, the city and residents of San Luis Obispo.”
“This draconian decision by the city to shut us down is a devastating financial blow to our company,” NHC said in the release. “This cannot be overstated.”
