Templeton asserted that Lindsey went to several county departments searching for possible illegalities at the property.


The report also noted that had Lindsey made statements such as “what you are doing is illegal,” or “you picked the wrong neighborhood,” while presenting himself in an official capacity, he "may have been attempting to use the influence of his position to stop the medical marijuana grow in his neighborhood in order to avoid a personal financial detriment.”


Lindsey said he welcomes the investigation.


Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.
