The Oregon Ethics Commission will explore whether Linn County Commissioner John Lindsey breached state ethics laws by attempting to utilize his position to stop medical cannabis from being grown in his neighborhood south of Lebanon.

A grievance was submitted on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several relative related to the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.

Lindsey stated he invites the examination.

” I consulted with members of the Ethics Commission and brought documents,” Lindsey stated. “We came to an contract that they require to investigate, and I think this complaint needs to be examined. I desire an examination of the complaint itself.”

According to a report by the Government Ethics Commission, Mark Owenby and Michelle Page purchased the property in December 2016. The couple started establishing a medical cannabis growing operation, including building a large greenhouse.

Templeton charged that in 2017, Lindsey went to the residential or commercial property and presented a business card noting he was a county commissioner. Templeton likewise asserts that Lindsey told the residential or commercial property owners “you selected the incorrect area,” and ” exactly what you are doing is illegal.”
