BERKELEY  (AP) — A Berkeley medical marijuana dispensary forced to shut down by the federal government in May is reopening down the street.

The Oakland Tribune says the Berkeley Patients Group was selling about $15 million in pot each year before it was forced to close.

The landlord evicted the dispensary after the U.S. Attorney's office in San Francisco threatened to seize the property because the pot dispensary was too close to two schools.

The city's largest medical marijuana dispensary is now sprucing up a 14,000-square-foot lot and 1,200-square-foot building down the street. The property isn't near any schools.

The date of the reopening hasn't been disclosed.
