PRINEVILLE, Ore. — The operator of a Prineville medical marijuana clinic is suggesting the federal government and local police intimidated his landlord into evicting him.
Ryan Cole opened the Crook County Compassion Clinic/Club last fall in a downtown building owned by the Veteran's Club, a collaborative effort of the local chapters of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars. In late February, Cole was issued an eviction notice and given until the end of March to move out.
