State Agencies, Local Politicians Tackle Illegal Marijuana Cultivation in Online Forum


SOUTH OREGON – A virtual forum on illegal marijuana cultivation was held earlier this evening with State Representative Pam Marsh.

The forum included speakers from the Oregon Department of Agriculture, the Jackson County Marijuana Advisory Committee, the Jackson County Sheriff, and more.

It aimed to solve the problems related to illegal cultivation and to solve the problem with new policies or resources.

The ODA says more than 7,000 acres of land in the state is currently used for legal crops.

“Our aim is to provide listeners with the most recent information possible and to identify the right path forward, and to that end, we will ask each speaker to comment on the policy solutions or the resources we need. “said Representative Le Marais.

Many speakers involved in the forum suggested the need for more resources, or funding, to help law enforcement better track and investigate illegal crops in the region.

The forum ended around 8:30 p.m.
