Local Authorities Warn of Illegal Marijuana Activities After Search Warrant Service!
On March 15, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office and other nearby agencies took part in a search of properties thought to be illegal marijuana grow sites. In case the worst happened, drones and vehicles with armored shields were sent to help with the search.
Authorities said that the search was done safely and without any problems. “Sergeant Tom Speldrich of the LCSO said, “Most of the time, these large-scale illegal marijuana operations do pose a threat to the communities where they are based.”
“They are bad for the environment because they often contain chemicals that are dangerous, flammable, or can blow up.” Sgt. Speldich also said that these sites often take advantage of their workers by making them work and live in dangerous places where there are no rules.
The illegal marijuana is a problem for deputies because there are no rules about what chemicals can be used to help the plant grow. This means that people could eat something that could be dangerous. Sgt. Speldrich said.
“It can’t be used because it’s often processed with chemicals that aren’t allowed, and there are no rules about how it’s grown, the quality, or even if there are things added that can be dangerous.” “It should be clear that these growers who don’t follow the rules are dangerous.” Because of how illegal marijuana plants grow, the only way for people to use them is to buy them on the black market.
But Sgt. Speldrich says that most of the marijuana will be sold and distributed out of state. Sgt. Speldrich said, “Very often, these products that are grown at these illegal large-scale operations are not sold on the local market, and they are often not sold legally.”
“It will be sold on the black market and across state lines, so we have to get rid of it the right way or destroy it on the spot.” During this operation, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office said that there was no immediate danger to the public and that the investigation is still going on.
