1. $300 Million Seized From Nursery in Long Beach
Date: December 2012
Location: Long Beach
Thanks to Snoop and his well-documented relationship with weed, it's nearly impossible to avoid think of Long Beach without thinking about weed, but this massive bust changed that. In December, 16 tons of marijuana worth between $300 million was discovered at a landscaping business in the LBC. After securing a warrant, police found two large containers packed with weed at the Rolling Hills Nursery. Because, of course, a plant nursery is the slickest cover for a multi-million dollar marijuana operation. Four people were arrested on site and Rolling Hills remained quiet on the incident, because what can really be said at that point? They were rolling in green alright, and we don't mean plants.
