Man opens fire at West Hollywood hotel when staff tells him to lose his weed

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (Cannabist) — Authorities say a man fired a gun several times outside an upscale Los Angeles-area hotel in a fit of rage after staff told him to get rid of his marijuana.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Charles Duncan says the man in his 30s was asked to leave after a dispute over pot. Duncan says as the man was leaving he shot four or five rounds into the air. He then got into a silver hatchback, driven by a woman, and sped off.
