Cannabis Business Files $900K Claim Against Mountain View CA After It Was Blocked From Opening

Mountain View City Hall

The dispute comes from not having an enclosed area for loading and unloading

A marijuana delivery business is seeking $900,000 in damages from the city of Mountain View, alleging that city staff blindsided them with new restrictions that prevented them from opening.

The company, MWKM Corporation, filed a claim against the city after it was effectively blocked last year from opening a cannabis business on Polaris Avenue due to security deficiencies. The Mountain View City Council reviewed the claim in closed session Tuesday and voted unanimously to reject it.

City planning staff, and later police officials, told the company last year that it must have an enclosed area for loading and unloading cannabis in order to meeting the city’s security requirements. Matthew Mahaffey, the owner of the company, argues that this isn’t spelled out anywhere in the city code, and that he was strung along by staff for months only to be told the property wouldn’t work.
