Oklahoma Attorney General Charges Two Lawyers In ‘Ghost Owner’ Medical Marijuana Operation

Eric Brown and Logan Jones were each charged with multiple counts

Two Oklahoma lawyers have been charged with multiple counts of having their legal assistants lend their names to medical marijuana grow licenses, giving their out-of-state clients a way to get around residency requirements through a practice state officials called “ghost owners.”

Attorney General John O’Connor announced the charges Thursday, calling it an example of how serious the state is taking illegal grow operations that are misusing Oklahoma’s legal medical marijuana system.

“Over 400 marijuana grow (operations) in the state of Oklahoma listed the Jones-Brown law firm employees as the owners,” said O’Connor, referring to state law that requires marijuana grow operations to be owned by an Oklahoma resident.

Eric Brown and Logan Jones were each charged with multiple counts of conspiracy, falsifying records, and cultivation of a dangerous substance.
