SISKIYOU COUNTY, Ore. — Jackson and Siskiyou County have been chosen to be featured in a Discovery Channel documentary. The piece highlights the eradication of marijuana in these areas.
Siskiyou County’s focus will be in the drug cartels involvement. Sheriff officials said county board members will look over the documentary contract Tuesday and decide if they want to go a head with the taping or make some tweaks to the contract.
Sheriff officials said this exposure could bring important law enforcement issues to light.
“Issues that arise with cartel operations because essentially what’s happening down in the boarder is imported to counties like Siskiyou,” said Sheriff Jon Lopey.
Sheriff officials said the filming process could begin as early as two to three weeks from Monday. Mendecino County was also asked to participate.
