Culver City-Adjacent Marijuana Dispensary Slapped With Permanent Orders to Stop Selling Weed in the Area
A flier for a past event at Organica.
The L.A. marijuana dispensary called Organica has been sunk like Titanica, at least according to the City Attorney's office, which boasted Thursday of a permanent injunction against the pot shop.
Organica, which the City Attorney's office says straddles L.A. and Culver City, has been the target of authorities for more than a year.
In the latest strike, Judge Michael Johnson said orders to stop operating as a weed seller were permanent. And he hit the shop with $325,000 in fees and penalties "for repeated violations of state law," according to the C.A.
Neighbors have complained about the shop a 13456 Washington Blvd., claiming that some of its marketing efforts targeted nearby Culver City High School students.

Under the injunction Organica can't sell, store, serve, or manufacture pot or other drugs.
In his April preliminary injunction, L.A. Superior Court Judge James Chalfant called Organica's operator "simply a drug dealer."
Authorities say the store has sold 131 kilos of marijuana products and plants and has done $5.2 million in sales in the last year or so of its existence.
