HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN YOU LIVE NEXT TO A SO-CALLED LEGAL LICENSED POT GROW
Urban Oregon Legalized marijuana, but rural Oregon is paying the price
CARTEL TYPE BEHAVIORS
It was Urban Oregon who legalized marijuana, but it is rural Oregon that is paying the price, and it was the Oregon legislature who redefined marijuana as an agricultural crop, which allowed large commercial marijuana grows to set up next to our rural residential farming homes bringing with them cartel type of behaviors. This was not voted on by Oregon voters.
In Oregon, rural residential farming communities are being inundated with out-of-state funders flooding in and buying up farm land to set up their so-called legal and licensed marijuana grows. Many have connections to drug cartels and are setting up shop next to our rural residential homes, bringing with them attitudes that are reflective of what law enforcement would call “aggravated threatening behaviors.” Story after story from citizens across the state who are being impacted are being heard by local and federal government jurisdictions.
In Oregon, local cities and counties were given the option to “Opt In” or “Opt Out” of medical and recreational marijuana. Of the 36 counties in Oregon over 19 of them have opted out and of the 241 cities over 150 have opted out.
