Last week we heard a rumor
that Amoeba was offering medical cannabis evaluations. We're here to report that this is true in spirit, if not technically in fact.
happening is that a new company called Green Evaluations
is issuing medical cannabis ID cards, also known as weed cards, out of an upstairs office space in the Amoeba building. The physician involved is Dr. Francesco Isolani.
The address, 1855A Haight Street, is accessible by following the leaf-green painted line through Amoeba's front door down the entry, to the right behind the DVD room, through a fire door furnished like a makeshift waiting room with plastic folding chairs, and up the stairs.
The clinic is open daily from 11am to 8pm (the same hours as Amoeba), and is offering new evaluations for $49, or $44 with a grand opening coupon (available on the front counter by the bag check as you walk in the record store).
In the past few days the clinic has gone from technically-official to fully-open, with advertising posters and and a sandwich board out front. The clinic is, according to advertisements, accepting walk-ins.
Green Evaluations is advertised as "physician owned and operated." The business name, however, is legally owned by Joe Goldmark, one of the owners of Amoeba Records.
