The Beach Cities Collective and its owner, David Lambert, have to pay $2.4 million for illegally running a marijuana dispensary in town, according to City Attorney Patrick Munoz.

Orange County Superior Court Judge William Monroe on March 16, signed the city's proposed order that Beach Cities Collective and Lambert each be fined $2,500 a day for every day the pot shop was open in the 26000 block of Calle Hermosa. The store was open 479 days. The judgment also includes other fines.

The city challenged that the collective was operating illegally in a residential neighborhood without proper permits.

After the initial ruling that permanently shut down the collective, Lambert told the Dana Point Times he planned to appeal the decision.
