Southern Oregon Medical Marijuana Farm Raided By Federal Drug Agents

Authorities shut down one of Oregon’s biggest medical marijuana operations this morning as part of a federal investigation into drug manufacturing and distribution.

About 9:30 a.m. today, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents raided The High Hopes Farm, James Bowman’s medical marijuana operation outside Jacksonville. The government brought earth-moving equipment to remove Bowman’s crop.

Bowman, a longtime fixture in southern Oregon’s medical marijuana community, faces the prospect of federal drug charges. He isn’t expected to be taken into police custody today, sources said.

Last spring, Bowman allowed The Oregonian to spend time on his farm and answered wide-ranging questions about his operation. He said at the time that his candor was a high-stakes gamble that could draw law enforcement’s attention.

Authorities this morning raided seven grow sites associated with Bowman’s Jackson County marijuana operation. Bowman told The Oregonian last spring he would grow 400 this year, each producing an estimated 3 pounds of marijuana.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Portland declined to comment on the raids, saying only that federal drug agents executed search warrants as part of an ongoing investigation.

    You know, you can be Republican and still love and support marijuana. Like me. Your points make no sense. And God forbid that Obama gets re-elected…

    Here we go again!

    The feds are still pissing away money on cannabis!

    O’FuckinBama had better put a quick fuckin’ stop to this waste of money after he gets re-elected! Piss me the fuck off.

    Romney and Ryan have fucked up so much I just don’t see either of them getting elected.

    Hopefully, the Republicans will keep fucking up so much more that Obama gets enough Democrats in the Congress to quit whining about how much the Republicans are making his pussy hurt because of all the screwings they are giving him.

    Oh, I can’t do anything to stop it because the Republicans will use it as leverage against me, and it’ll be one big cluster-fuck again, and that makes my pussy hurt…and my ass, too.

    My pussy hurts. My butthole has been stretched to its limits.

    Do fuckin’ something! You’re going to get re-elected, so I want you to have something pro-cannabis ready to go for the winter holiday season. You’ll fuckin’ know if you won by then so while the prohibitionists are distracted by Channukah, Christmas and New Year’s do something for cannabis for a fuckin’ change!
