(So it's not all bad news!!!)

A medical marijuana dispensary could soon be opening in Templeton.
The San Luis Obispo County Planning Commission approved a permit request to open a facility to provide cannabis to patients with a prescription. The facility will provide counseling and educational services to patients when they receive the marijuana.
"Finally, they approved us to open. So that means we'll be able to serve the community pretty soon and we look forward to being an example of how a dispensary can be a positive part of our community," said Austen Conella.
There is a two week appeal period for those opposed to the permit. If there are no appeals, the dispensary could open in 30 days.
