Hollister is a San Benito County city that has been home to annual motorcycle rallies on the 4th of July since 1947. The 1947 Hollister motorcycle rally is the event from which the movie The Wild One is based. Hollister claims it is the earthquake capital of the world because it rests on the Calaveras Fault Line which is part of the San Andreas Fault system.
A medical marijuana dispensary in Hollister is now being forced to move after losing a lawsuit brought against it by San Benito County. Purple Cross Rx originally opened in downtown Hollister in 2010, but the city of Hollister was able to procure a court order to get the dispensary evicted for violating a zoning ordinance. When Purple Cross Rx moved to a new location, it made sure that the new location was just outside of Hollister's city limits. However, San Benito County promptly brought its own lawsuit against the medical marijuana dispensary over a zoning ordinance violation for the county. The trial court judge in the county zoning case decided to follow the California Supreme Court's ruling in City of Riverside v. Inland Empire Patients Health and Wellness Center and rule against Purple Cross Rx for violating the county's dispensary zoning ordinance.
