On Wednesday February 3, 2010 – Palm Springs City Council made a vote favoring relaxing restrictions and provided two Medical Marijuana Collective permits. From the dozens of applications received, there are two winning applicants selected; CannaHelp that is to operate on 500 block of East Industrial Blvd. and Desert Organic Solutions that will be located North of Interstate 10 off of Indian Avenue.
The Palm Springs City Council advised the two collectives that they would need to grow the medicinal marijuana on-site and should be able to provide the medicine to a large amount of patients.
No date has been announced as to when the collectives will be open.
