Inhofe's office requests $4M to combat illicit pot growers


EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe's office announced Wednesday that he requested $4 million in federal funds to help combat illegal Oklahoma marijuana growing operations.

Inhofe's chief of staff, Luke Holland, announced the request during an Oklahoma Sheriffs Association meeting.

Holland said Inhofe requested a direct appropriation through the U.S. Justice Department to allow the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs to establish a unit to combat "transnational and national drug organizations." The unit would work with sheriffs to combat illegal drug operations.
