A medical marijuana dispensary owner is riding high after being named mayor of Sebastopol.

The City Council selected 36-year-old Robert Jacob as mayor earlier this week.

Jacob runs two pot clinics in Sonoma County and officials believe he's the first dispensary owner in the nation to serve as a mayor.

Jacob has been on the city council for two years, and most recently was vice mayor. He's worked to create statewide dispensary regulations.
