What better day to raid a medical marijuana dispensary than 4/20 AKA National Weed Day? The LAist explains:
No better day for a tour of beachfront dispensaries than April 20th, or 4/20, the date/time a bunch of stoners once decided to use as code for smoking the pot. But to walk into a marijuana dispensary, one must have a medical marijuana ID card administered by a county health official (thanks to, yep -- CA Senate Bill 420). But for at least one store on the Venice boardwalk, the day began with an uninvited visit by card-carriers of the authoritative kind -- the ones dressed in blue.
Authorities raided the Medical Kush Doctor on Venice's Ocean Front Walk Wednesday, according to multiple reports. The dispensary, at 1811 Ocean Front Walk, is apparently also known as Medical Kush Beach Club.
