Jackson County Goes Under a State of Emergency

Jackson County Goes Under a State of Emergency

by Paul Byrd


Jackson County declared a state of emergency due to the overwhelming amount of illegal marijuana farms being established in the area.

 

The widespread of illegal marijuana farms forced the county to turn to the governor and the Legislature’s leaders for help. Once law enforcement stepped in, they claimed the rise of the illegal cannabis in the county to be a significant threat to public health and safety.

 

With a shortage of full-time employees available to handle the situation at hand, the issue has spread across different Oregon counties. 

 

Josephine County is another community that has fallen victim to the mass expansion of illegal cannabis farms.

 

Sheriff Dave Daniel theorized that there are several hundreds of illegal marijuana operations in his county alone and fears there’s more taking place in neighboring communities.

 

The illegal farms usually pose as a registered hemp farms to disguise themselves from the general public. However, several of the farms were exposed by authorities after failing to allow entry for inspectors.

 

Currently, the governor is working on implementing stricter cannabis regulations and establishing more full-time employees to help assist in this situation.
