The Jackson County Planning Commission is recommending a ban for 
growing marijuana on most land zoned for rural residential use. Rules 
changes would require plants would have to be set back from 
neighboring property lines by at least 250 feet? Guess that 
eliminates 95 percent of the 4,000 small medical marijuana growers 
that are doing it for patients that need the medication. Jackson 
County Commissioners are favoring large commercial marijuana growers 
that can afford to buy large parcels of farm land and have 1,000-plant grows.

What about the patients who depend on small mom-and-pop medical 
marijuana growers? They will have to buy from some industrial grow 
for profit. What happened to the land of the free? Not here in 
Oregon, seems no mater how much land one owns, don't ever plan to do 
anything with it. But lets put a hardship on the little guy, guess 
that's the Oregon way, thanks to the Jackson County commissioners.

Please attend the Jack County commissioners' public hearing at 9 a.m. 
Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2016.
