A Supervisor proposed banning businesses in the area due to concerns gentrification and high rents in the area along with other community complaints. The Planning Commission earlier rejected the proposal, reports the San Francisco Examiner.

The ban, introduced by Supervisor Aaron Peskin, comes after the board last year approved citywide regulations that ushered in the new era of legal recreational cannabis, following voter approval of Proposition 64. The regulations were hotly contested by some in the Chinese-American community who opposed the entire industry and viewed cannabis as a harmful drug.
