Medical Marijuana Spring Planting
In this Sept. 29, 2011, photo, medical marijuana grower James Anderson looks over the remains of a Gold Hill, Ore., marijuana garden that held hundreds of plants before federal agents pulled them out and hauled them away. In the months since federal agents seized dumptruck loads of medical marijuana from large gardens in Southern Oregon, the numbers of registered growsites serving multiple patients throughout the state has fallen dramatically. Growers and medical marijuana advocates say the risk of losing their crop, their property and even going to federal prison has had a chilling effect on others, if not themselves.
