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.

Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.

“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.”
