MEDFORD, Ore. – A crowd gathered outside of the federal court house in Medford on Thursday afternoon in response to recent medical marijuana raids.
The protestors gathered included medical marijuana patients and supporters. The protest is part of the fallout from a recent marijuana raid where federal agents seized hundreds of plants from the High Hopes Farm in Ruch.
The raid was said to have been one of the largest in the state. Protestors say the DEA raids have left a chilling message and impact on local patients. Protestors marched for an hour, saying they hope their presence helps raise awareness of what they believe to be an ongoing issue.
