MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — Police have arrested four people in raids on medical marijuana dispensaries in Southern Oregon.

Medford Police Chief Tim George said the arrests Thursday followed a two-year investigation in which undercover police bought marijuana.

The charges allege the sale of marijuana outside the law governing medical marijuana. The law legalizing medical marijuana in Oregon allows growers to recover only their expenses, and not anything to cover their labor or a profit.

The Mail Tribune reports that among the four was Lori Duckworth, executive director of the Southern Oregon chapter of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws.

She faces 22 counts of conspiracy to deliver marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school.
