According to a report by the Government Ethics Commission, Mark Owenby and Michelle Page purchased the property in December 2016. The couple began developing a medical marijuana growing operation, including constructing a large greenhouse.

I met with members of the Ethics Commission and brought documentation, Lindsey said. We came to an agreement that they need to investigate, and I believe this complaint needs to be investigated as well. I want an investigation of the complaint itself.


Further investigation is also needed to determine whether Lindsey may have had a conflict of interest when he initiated a lawsuit naming the property owners and others.
He also alleged that Lindseys actions were being made in part because he feared the marijuana operation would reduce home values in the area.
There appears to be substantial objective basis to believe that one or more violations of Oregon Government Ethics law may have occurred as a result of Mr. Lindseys actions in relation to the marijuana being grown on Mr. Owenby and Ms. Pages property in his neighborhood. The Oregon Government Ethics Commission should move to investigate whether John Lindsey may have violated ORS 244.040(1), ORS 244.040(4) and ORS 244.120(2 (Motion 4), said the report approved by Ronald Bersin, the commission's executive director.
