Inside A Southern Oregon Medical Marijuana Farm
Medical marijuana growers say they are constantly operating with the fear that federal agents may raid them, and two recent raids in Southern Oregon are reinforcing that fear.rnrn
The High Hopes Farm, located outside Ruch, grows about 200 plants for its patients. They say they make sure everything they do is legal, because one misstep could get the attention of federal agents. In the past two weeks, medical marijuana grows in Gold Hill and Central Point were raided by the DEA. Hundreds of plants were hauled away from each site. No charges were made and no one was arrested in either case. The growers say both locations were in compliance with state law. The DEA is still declining to comment on the raids.
