Authorities discover marijuana cultivation center in Compton

img_8073Well lookey here.  A clandestine marijuana growing operation was discovered in the South section of Compton, which resulted in the arrest of at least a dozen individuals.

4000 plants were found in a 13,000 sq ft warehouse with a street value of over $8 mil.

    Who turned up the heat and made someone in “leadership” make the call to shut down those whom they were in partnership with?
    Watch and listen closely to the reactions of this bust and you’ll have all the answers you need.

    Get educated on this very serious matter before us soon. It’s on Youtube, and other places online. I now understand the DEA’s position on categorizing it as a Schedule I narcotic still. Otherwise it would be like opening the virtual floodgates to those who really don’t need it. I’m done. Thanks.

    Is there any way we can learn who the owner/ operators of this grow site were? Just a question of curiosity. I’m sure it’s not hard to trace. Inquiring minds want to know. And it was illegal so…follow the money, maybe. Very interesting…and on an anonymous tip? How long has this been going on I wonder. Wondering if there’s a Colorado connection too. What’s really going on here and who were they supplying with product, next question, yet pending. What does that mean for the “Brickyard” commercial center, yet to open? I have a ton of questions since wrapping my brain around recent events and the community forum to discuss it, that seemed closed, reportedly, to citizen comment. Very suspicious all of a sudden. Thanks for following up on any details as they emerge. Something’s not quite right about all of this. Massive profits seem to draw such operations into existence. And with the November vote pending in the state, we should be acting along the lines of other cities who have completely put a ban on even the dispensaries. I was told awhile back that cities couldn’t ban them, according to California’s law, but I noted that several have done so, and I think it’s a sensible move. Go to Paramount, Carson, Gardena and other neighboring cities and they’re harder to find than in Compton, where money talks and landlords look the other way. I walked past one, recently on Rosecrans with that green cross outside and wouldn’t have noticed it unless I’d been on foot that day. I have another one in a former used furniture store on Wilmington now and no green cross, just and “Open” sign on the door and I discovered that one on a Saturday walkabout in my area. There was only a whiteboard with the word, “Collective” getting my attention that early morning. None, I understand have business licences leeither, so why doesn’t the city act effectively to shut them down? What are they afraid of in the city attorney’s office and MLES? We do have municipal codes on the books but they’re just being ignored all over. If you walk an area, there’s a new one. Another on Rosecrans is too close to Davis Middle School and even with darkened windows, the loitering outside, just draws attention to the business inside. Some don’t even want to park there for other businesses because of the element who hangs out near there. Landlords need to be held accountable, if possible, but nothing’s being done, apparently. So it seems like our CMC’s mean literally nothing at all here. Why is that? Makes no sense, unless it’s all about the Benjamins. How “sick” can people be who have their cards now? I know that CBD’s are the curative compounds in most medicinal weed, but these folks are buying and using because of the THC levels, which have radically increased over the decades. They just want to get high, because if they wanted to treat certain conditions, the CBD or cannabidiol levels. MJ with high THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol levels are grown to get a person high. Most grow operations are in it for the money anyway, so it’s never in their vested interest to grow strains for the CBD levels, which are often much, much lower in those newer strains. It’s science, it’s documented and profits are made far quicker when you can get people high, yet the debate is still ongoing about the physiological and psychological addiction of higher THC levels overall. Recently, research has shown CBD to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects (the “high” or “stoned” feeling) that THC provides. While high THC strains often tout levels of over 20%, generally, CBD levels of over 4% are considered to be high. I think we all know where this is headed, however. Follow the money. No one will buy the higher CBD level MJ because of this difference. Seems all a sham the talk about Medicinal Marijuana. Such a cruel joke on us all. More research is being done on the beneficial effects of higher CBD levels and their positive effects for those with conditions e.g. Crohn’s disease, PTSD, and multiple sclerosis. Lately, it is one of the rarest of these conditions, Dravet’s Syndrome, that is getting a lot of attention from both the medical community and the public.
    Dravet’s Syndrome is an especially debilitating form of epilepsy that affects children and is notoriously resistant to current approved treatment methods. Sufferers are plagued by seizures, often up to hundreds a day, that worsen as they age and can be life-threatening. Currently, treatment methods include having the child wear an eyepatch, specialized diets, and brain surgery, but all have mixed success rates. CBD is effective in most of these conditions, as recent evidence is revealing. To get high, is just to be pretentious. A lot of pretentious people with MMJ cards these days.

    The mayor changes her stance on pot and then this. Coincidence, I don’t believe in.

    I hope they arrested the whites too and not just the minorities working there!
