A company invested $700,000 trying to start a 30,000-square-foot “industrial marijuana cultivation” farm in the tiny California town of Isleton — which had approved the plan for a minimum guaranteed fee of $25,000 per month.

The proposed pot farm was already being investigated by a Sacramento County grand jury on suspicion of alleged kickbacks to Isleton officials.
