    What an asinine headline,….even the article states that the Med Weed Dispensary had nothing to do with the shooting or that it was “unknown” if they were connected,….!

    It feels like it is 1932 and we have to listen to the idiots declaring the horrors of “The Evil Weed”,…

    …what a terrible article and an embarrassment to the paper/writer who was forced to write something so stupid and attach their poor name to it!!!!

        RJ was right. Maybe the shooting was connected to the beauty supply store nearby or the local liquor store.

  2. Alan Di says:

    There are so many Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Los Angeles, it’s hard to get shot and not be near one.
