Local Hype: Why The Bomb Squad Truck Failed, Plans For Expanded Convention Center & Illegal Weed Farms

 -Expansion plans revealed for L.A. Convention Center and J.W. Marriott

"The Convention Center expansion, designed by Populous, would expand the facility's footprint through the construction of a new structure bridging over Pico Boulevard, connecting the original West Hall with the 1990s South Hall.  A full buildout would add approximately 193,000 square feet of exhibit space - resulting in a net total of roughly 1 million square feet of space across the facility - as well as 60,000 square feet of new meeting rooms and nearly 100,000-square-foot multipurpose hall at the top level."

"In the past two years, Villanueva’s department has opened criminal investigations into two key watchdogs — the inspector general and a member of the oversight panel. It has also investigated a former department official who played a role in disciplining deputies, and the sheriff has publicly accused the former county CEO of illegal activity."
-There's a lot of illegal cartel farms growing weed in our surrounding deserts and it really sucks for other farmers.

"The joint operation on June 8 resulted in a total of approximately 373,000 plants and 33,480 pounds of harvested marijuana, worth an estimated street value of $1.193 billion, according to L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva."
