Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department investigators said this week they are keeping an eye on a Montrose medical marijuana clinic they suspect is dispensing pot.
Glendale has a moratorium on such facilities.
Arthur Setyan, medical director of Montrose Medical Group, denied the claim, saying the office only gives out recommendations for the drug.
FOR THE RECORD: The La Cañada Valley Sun has learned that the quotes and information attributed to Arthur Setyan in an article published April 7, 2011 ("Investigators target pot clinic") were actually made by someone else who wrongly identified himself as Setyan.
“The county’s being overzealous, because there is no medical marijuana on site. It’s a standard doctor’s office,” Setyan said Wednesday.
But Lt. Angela Shepherd of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station told La Cañada Flintridge City Council members Monday that narcotics deputies are monitoring the facility, located above a dentist’s office at 3909 Ocean View Blvd.
