Palms, California’s K.F.C. (Kind For Cures) dispensary, located at 3516 Hughes Avenue, gained worldwide fame last year when its story and photo went viral on the web.

‚ÄčThe infamous K.F.C. dispensary, a.k.a. Kind For Cures, has reopened in Los Angeles as the city has backed off on its crackdown against allegedly illegal marijuana dispensaries.

A K.F.C. employee confirmed on Monday that the pot shop was once again open for business, reports Dennis Romero at the LA Weekly, our sister blog in the Village Voice Media world.
The MySpace page of the dispensary, based in Palms, California, advertises that it reopened on Thursday, the day after the City Clerk’s office announced it was stopping the crackdown against out-of-compliance pot shops.
“Kind For Cures is re-opening August 26th, 10 a.m. to midnight, 7 days per week!” the MySpace page reads. “Come on in for your favorite flavors!!!”
K.F.C. was one of the dispensaries which shut down after it got a warning letter from City Attorney Carmen Trutanich’s office back in June, threatening $2,500-a-day fines and even possible jail time.
Asked on Monday if Los Angeles is once again basically letting all the pot shops operate, a City attorney’s spokesperson said, “You’re basically correct.”
