55 complaints against 3 marijuana dispensaries

The city's received 30 complaints, including one from District Attorney Dan May, against Pure Medical in the Rockrimmon area.

Another dispensary near Brookwood & Academy has the second most complaints with 24. 

A third dispensary on Galley has one complaint filed against it.
