Last Collective in Chatsworth Closed by LAPD

 by lucy

Herbal Medicine Care was the last collective in Chatsworth, CA; that is, until yesterday afternoon.  LAPD officers finished their brick and mortar sweep of collectives in Chatsworth Monday afternoon.  The last shop in the district, Herbal Medicine Care, was shut down, and it resulted in three arrests.

Police seized over 50 lbs of marijuana including over 150 plants.  They also confiscated the collective’s medical records.  Everything that was confiscated was valued at approximately $600,000.

After the operation concluded on Monday, a press conference was held.  Police highlighted the fact that marijuana is still illegal federally, despite the fact that Proposition 215 was approved by California voters to legalize medical marijuana in 1996.  Deputy Chief Jorge Villegas said, “We’re not done yet.  There are approximately 200 other locations within the San Fernando Valley that we’re also going to be targeting.”

    Seems kind of fishy that the police Shut down the dispensaries and make a lot of money. Seems to be a pretty easy target and pay day.

    people need to get together and go to there city officials or whomever is in charge of these kind of matters because they aren’t only taking medicine that belongs to the dispensaries/collectives, it also belongs equally to the patients of each of those collectives and they are stealing are MEDICINE!! and stealing the money that isn’t theirs its the patients hard earned money that keep these collectives alive..and also the patients or caregivers that started these collectives have donated their time and money to supply patients with good medicine and then this is the thanks they get…sad
