We have much love for the weed-smoking seniors of Laguna Woods Village in Orange County, a retirement community that marks the epicenter of O.C. conservatism.

About 150 of the 18,000 oldsters there have formed a medical marijuana club and, after their pot gardens were rejected by fellow retirees and then area cops, they've decided to go MacGruber on it.

That's right, these gray-haired geezers got more weed than ...

... Snoop Dogg: They have two off-site, top-secret greenhouses, according to Associated Press.

Since their last grow operation was busted by cops, they're not telling us where their favorite buds are.

Resident and pot smoker Joe Schwartz says:

Look, whether it's a legal thing or not a legal thing, it helps you. I am 90 years old and I don't mind talking about it.

Move over, Colombian cartels. Make way for the mature mafia.
