"Long Beach Police last week made two arrests in connection with an illegal marijuana grow operation in a vacant storefront located next door to the main office of an alternative high school in Bixby Knolls.
Long Beach Police Department Narcotics detectives arrested Robert DeWeese, 64, of Seal Beach, and David Benalt, 25, of Manhattan Beach, on Thursday, July 21, in connection with the illegal marijuana grow operation at 4352 Atlantic Ave., LBPD spokesman Sgt. Rico Fernandez said... A search warrant was served at the location last Thursday, at which time detectives seized approximately 200 marijuana plants and took the two suspects into custody, Fernandez said."
What are your thoughts on having weed legal or illegal in Long Beach? Do you live near a medical marijuana dispensary? If so, are they a nuisance in the community? Do you know anyone who has benefited from the plant? How do you think the police are handling this situation city-wide?

I see, so it's not like you can tell if it's a bad or good thing right?
I heard that the location in Bixby Knolls was becoming a problem and people smoking on the side of the building. I remember there used to be 2 stores right next to each other.
Yea, I thought those dispensaries had to be within certain limits of a school. One thing I would like to know if that if someone gets pulled over by a cop and they show them their medical card, will they be off the hook, if they had some weed on them.
I don't know of anyone who really had to use their card because a police officer pulled him/her over... But what I DO hear is, "Don't trip I got my medical card on me." I just give them this expression (-_-)
