L.A. Pot Shops RAIDED on 4/20

4/20/2011 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's high time for weeding out possibly illegal activity -- because law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the California Medical Board just raided two L.A. marijuana dispensaries ... on NATIONAL POT DAY.

420
We're told the government agency was executing some kind of search warrant at Medical Kush Doctor and Medical Kush Beach Club in Venice -- but it's unclear what they're looking for exactly.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell us ... the search warrants were issued in connection with a criminal narcotics investigation.

Probably trying to see if that was the place Murray got that bag of pot the cops found in MJ's house after he died!

Instead of worrying about marijuana all levels of our government should be more focused on serious drugs like cocaine, crystal meth, heroin, etc. Or prehaps they should be more focused on alcohol and cigarettes > both of which do harm to the body (unlike marijuana which has never caused one death) and kill many people annually!!

This has got to gnaw at real cops that want to fight real crime.

hah figures someone had to pull the "unlike marijuana which has never caused one death"

Well Christine... Not only did it kill one person a month ago it killed a whole damn family... One dumb kid smoking weed thought it would be cool to go out driving and he doesn't even remember the ****ing accident because he was too high.. Funny enough he must have been super high on life because only drug in his system was weed.

Your right.. no one has died from weed... and you wonder why its still illegal. stupid people.

The problem with these shops is that they are supposedly selling a drug for medicinal purposes. And yet -- there is NO quality control at all, no one knows what they're really buying. The one in our neighborhood has cars lined up outside it --people who are buying lg. quantities CLEARLY for resale (as our police captain -who is not against marijuana) has pointed out. They also has almost no protection against robbery -- which all pharmacies have. In other words -- they are absolute magnets for drug dealers and for armed robbery. THAT'S why I don't want one in my neighborhood -- and why you should be pretty leery of allowing anyone to open one of these shops in yours. They are NOT responsible merchants.
