No part of Pike County is listed as farmland. Meigs County, a couple of counties northeast of Pike is listed for high quality, highly developed farmland. However, you don't need farmland to develop indoor grow sites for marijuana. Indoor grow sites cultivate the seeds into small plants that can fully mature under grow lamps. Immature plants can be transplanted to mature with natural lght.
Two of the 'gang of ten' that incorporated in an attempt to monopolize the marijuana grow sites by ballot initiative last year (and lost), were not in Ohio counties with farmland.
Please note the total amount of grow agreage the 'gang of ten' proposed to farm marijuana, the location of the counties and their suitability for marijuana crops: 340 acres total, with at least 55 of those acres not suitable for farming. Logically, those two LLC's would have had to become indoor feeder grow sites. One on Cleveland's doorstep, the other on Cincinnati's doorstep. Both open gateways for illegal distribution to adjacent state black markets.

Dr. Suresh Gupta, Alan Mooney. Located in central Ohio, western part of the county has high quality, low developed farmland.
Bridge Property Group LLC. 28.46 acres in Lucas County. .

Located in the most southwestern part of Ohio. North & western parts of the county, high quality, highly developed.IMO Pricipals of the two LLC's, Vendure DCE & W.F. Greene Investments , are highly suspect for connections with indoor marijuana grow sites. Both LLC's have less than 55 acres combined to grow marijuana in locations that are not designated for farmland, of which both locations have large sprawling urban city growth.
If I'm investigating a family annilation connected with substantial indoor marujana grow sites, I want to know who would have an interest in putting them out of business. I wouldn't be thinking Mexican Cartel, because it doesn't make sense a Mexican Cartel doing business with the Rhodens and profiting from that business, would want to kill the golden goose laying the golden eggs.
