Reporter Jen Sharpe takes us on a tour of the city's witches. From the occult ritual of Topanga beach to the Hollywood retail store Panpipes.

Did you know L.A. has an official witch? Louise Huebner is just one of many in the L.A. witch scene. Jen Sharpe caught up with some of them at an L.A. witches meetup, which connects druids, shamans, Wiccans and the curious.

Maja, the White Witch, says she's actually faced discrimination for her beliefs. The White Witch now practices her craft by giving tarot, astrological and other types of readings and divinations. Maja works at a business on Sunset called The House of Intuition.
