Yurok Tribe launches operation to rid reservation of marijuana
The Yurok Tribe of California is sending a strong message to people who use the reservation to grow marijuana.
In conjunction with federal, state and local authorities, tribal police are serving search warrants at marijuana operations on the reservation. It's the fourth year in a row that "Operation Yurok" has gone after illegal grows.
“We are targeting the illegal grows that pose the biggest threat to our community,” Chairman Thomas P. O’Rourke Sr. said in a press release. “We will not be idle, while these growers damage our natural resources, water supplies and way of life.”
