By regulating medical cannabis dispensaries, the City and County of San Francisco is assuming an undertaking only to promote the general welfare. It is not assuming, nor is it imposing on its officers and employees, an obligation for breach of which it is liable in money damages to any person who claims that such breach proximately caused injury. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the City shall assume no liability whatsoever, and expressly does not waive sovereign immunity, with respect to the permitting and licensing provisions of this Article, or for the activities of any medical cannabis dispensary. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any actions taken by a public officer or employee under the provisions of this Article shall not become a personal liability of any public officer or employee of the City. This Article (the “Medical Cannabis Act”) does not authorize the violation of state or federal law.
