RUCH, Ore. – More details have emerged about a federal raid on a medical marijuana grow site last week.
James Bowman, the owner of the High Hopes Farm in Ruch, explained that federal agents took away all of the marijuana from the grow site during a raid Sept. 18. Those plants were being grown for about 200 patients. He explained it meant the farm would have to shut down.
Bowman also explained the grow was in compliance with Oregon law, and that they had not been shipping the pot, or profiting from it. Meanwhile, patients who had their marijuana grown at the farm said they are still at a loss for words.
“There’s going to be a lot of people suffering,” said Casey Moore, who uses marijuana to treat muscle spasms and pain. “It’s a horrible feeling to think about it.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office has not commented on the investigation.
