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.

LinOhio,

so you think we should close the pot-shops and start handing out pain killers.....hello? Can you ADDICTION? Why not do it, right? Give everyone pain killers and a bottle of vodka to wash 'em down.

You're a real brainiac girl

bbrown you must be smoking something now, because you make no sense. Anyone who has a brain knows that smoking weed or drinking alcohol is not good for you. Get a life and quit the habit, it can lead to bad health, jail time, lost job, lost relationships, and people know you are a loser if you smoke pot!!!!!!!!

LinOhio, so you would rather take a drug that eats you from the inside (yes, most prescription painkillers do this,) and give you worse side effects than the sickness you're taking it for? I'm sure you're familiar with those wonderful commercials that play on TV every 15 minutes...

You know you don't have to smoke it, right? Yeahhh... exactly...

Compared with prescription pills, THC and CBDs do VERY minimal damage (if any at all) to your body if you eat/drink it.

Just another person who needs to go to the local shop and suck on a hard candy.

Oh, and by the way, we're NOT the minority. Unless you call 41% a "minority"... 41% and climbing, baby!

Get used to it...

LinOhio,

You're losing ground fast, faster then John (who jumped ship). Let's not forget that marijuana (used for medical or recreational purposes) is NOT physically addicting like those painkillers you so whole heartedly support.

More people are addicted to painkillers then weed.

You seriously believe that everyone purchasing pot from these shops actually need it for their ailment? Give me a break, most get it just to get high, or resell it or give it to friends. Get real potheads, get your head out of your a*s*s. Oh, excuse me you don't know your head from your.....

And if you don't believe the 41% thing...

That percentage is incrementally climbing every single year. They've LIED to us for generations and we're now figuring it out. Don't believe the propaganda they've tried to shove down our throats!

I'm not a loser, by the way. Your concept of a "pothead" just won't cut it anymore. Some of us (the ones you would least expect,) are extremely educated and well-paid, so suck it.

I have a marijuana card, I DO NOT sell it or give it to friends. Not everyone who has a card "deals". I will say YES some people do but not everyone.

Your train of thought kinda goes along with saying, everyone who is of the age to buy alcohol buys and gives to friends or sells it.

OPEN YOUR MIND

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.
---------------
yeah i mean its not like anyone has ever died due to drinking right considering its legal and all.

idk why you think people buy weed and just give it away, people smoke yes together getting a medical medical marijuana license isnt very hard to get and it really doesnt make sence for people to buy weed for whole price from a shop then try and sell it when stuff is way cheaper on the streets so what are you smoking

The only reason there are "problems" (for example, selling it, buying it for recreational purposes, or sharing it,) associated with marijuana is because of law enforcement and federal policy. If they didn't go after someone who used, bought, or sold a remotely HARMLESS drug, (instead of going after meth heads, for example,) there wouldn't be so many non-violent, and frankly, peaceful "offenders" crowding up our jails.

This is definitely one of the things that will be changing, and SOON. I predict in the next 2 years at least one state will legalize, be it CO, CA, WA, or ME. Other states will follow suit and the feds will HAVE to give in.

There are so many things to be focusing on in this messed up country... It's only a matter of time.

You guys are pathetic that think weed needs to be illegal, First of all figure out why its illegal- The Goverment- it was made illegal to get people to support the war and so the big oil companys wouldnt go out of business which the government makes money off of as well, Its the best medicine in the world that cures a wider list of pains and illnesses than any other man made medicine, if only the government could dirty it up and make a profit, but they cant!! because its a plant that grows straight from the ground naturally and needs nothing else and everyone can grow it even with the most modest set up!! A little hard to tax a natural plant. You guys are freakin sheep that think pots wrong, Invadeing other countrys is wrong, and thats where most of this jarhead mentallity comes from soldiers and police.. Beers and cigs are 100 times worse than smoking some bud. Makes me sick, I am a professional poker player that averages around 200 thousand a year, I give to many charitys and have helped many people.Its because of pot that i have remained so open minded and close to my friends and family, It is because of pot that i have been able to stay so focused and consistant in winning many poker games. Marijuanna expands your mind it does not destroy it learn the facts and try it befor you persicute. And try real medical marijuanna ! there is a difference most of you out there that think you "know" pot and dont like it have just tryed the dirty shwag weed, not the real thing its the complete opposite
