Got coats? Get marijuana.

The medical marijuana dispensary fighting to stay open in Stockton is holding a coat drive.

Members who donate a gently used coat get a gram of pot through the end of the month, said Lynn Smith, director of Central Valley Caregivers Cooperative – formerly known as Pathways.

He said the exchange has been popular. The dispensary already has almost 500 coats. “We’re running out of room,” he said.

The coats will be donated to the New Hope Family Shelter and the Stockton Shelter for the Homeless, he said.

As for the dispensary’s legal troubles: the county Board of Supervisors last month denied its appeal to stay open (though it still is). The dispensary has no business license and is in violation of the county’s moratorium on marijuana dispensaries.

Assistant County Counsel Mark Myles said the county has referred the matter to the District Attorney’s Office, which will consider any further action.
