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.
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.”
