Road to Rural Prosperity- Mark Woodward on Efforts of Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics to Reign in Illegal Marijuana Grow Operations

Since the legalization of Medical Marijuana in Oklahoma with State Question 788- criminals have flocked to the state to set up illegal grow houses because of cheap permits, cheap land and lax rules allowing them to get into the business of growing marijuana in Oklahoma.

Ron Hays talks with Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward about how these enterprises have invaded Oklahoma- the magnitude of the current problem and how the state is pushing back on thousands of bad people who have set up shop in the state- with the hope to reduce the number of these operations dramatically in the days to come.

It’s a huge problem all across rural Oklahoma but Woodward believes progress is being made to reign in these illegal marijuana farms.
