2 Arrested in West Valley Pot Shop Raid

Two people are facing drug charges following warrants being served at a medical marijuana dispensary in Woodland Hills.

Two people were arrested Tuesday in west San Fernando Valley when police served a warrant at a dispensary and its owner's home, though the Los Angeles Police Department is not commenting yet on why the business was raided.

Gennady Tikhonov, 54, of Sherman Oaks and Vyacheslav Bugakov, 39, of North Hollywood, were booked on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale and held on $20,000 bail each, according to Los Angeles police.

Detectives from the Topanga Station served a search warrant at All Organic Collective in Woodland Hills Tuesday afternoon, then searched the owner's home in the 14700 block of Valleyheart Drive, police said.

About 17 pounds of pot valued at $51,000 and a pound of hashish valued at $4,500 were confiscated, as were three guns. At each location, about 200 marijuana plants were found under cultivation, police said.

Officer Christopher No said he could not comment on why the dispensary was raided because of an ongoing investigation, but added that the act was not random.

A number of violations could have prompted an investigation such as permitting issues, No said.

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.

The problem is this: when marijuana is legal, whether medicinal or recreational, the gangs go out of business. When the gangs go out of business, the DOJ will be forced to layoff hundreds if not thousands of unneeded employees. So, it is in the best interest of the DOJ to keep the gangs in business. What a waste of our hard earned tax money which could be used in much better ways.
