Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department shut down a medical marijuana dispensary in Reseda Thursday night. The LAPD says the store was, in reality, fronting an interstate drug ring that dealt in much more than medicinal pot.
Six people were arrested at the White Oak Healing Center. They are all suspected of dealing cocaine, oxycodone and unauthorized marijuana.
The arrests were the result of an investigation that began last year, when there was a fatal shooting at the center. Police said, at the time, that the death looked like an organized crime hit.
