The Oregon Government Ethics Commission will investigate whether Linn County Commissioner John Lindsey violated state ethics laws by attempting to use his position to stop medical marijuana from being grown in his neighborhood south of Lebanon.

A complaint was filed on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several family members associated with the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.
Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.

He also alleged that Lindsey’s actions were being made in part because he feared the marijuana operation would reduce home values in the area.
