They contacted Ben Shepherd and Neal McKenny but had no comment from Larry Doss.
I contacted Mr. Doss, who is a local businessman and real estate broker.
"In this case, it is just a lease," said Mr. Doss.
"This person wanted to lease and told me that they were going to do a medical grow. My tenant showed me a lot of documentation, from their consultant, Paul Gallegos. They assured me they were taking all the proper steps and were covered. "
"I thought this would be a good opportunity to learn and grow through the process so it would be helpful to future tenants," said Mr. Doss. "We are not getting rich on this; this is not a situation where there is a mysterious envelope of cash."
"They give us a check like any other tenant."
