Help Save the Outlaw Hill Healing Farm

Hello to all,

My Name is Lucas Mulvaugh.  I have designed this site to ask the people for help in saving my healing farm in Livingston, Montana from being taken by the federal government.  This is my story.

On January of 2010 I opened a business called the Outlaw Hill Health and Sustainability Institute.  The mission was to promote healthy living, spiritual consciousness, and a sustainable future.  The company had seven different division all in various stages of development; medical marijuana, organic food and plant medicine, spiritual consciousness, alternative healing arts, sustainability, animal welfare, and education.   The business was run in a professional and legitimate manner and was helping many people. We paid all the required taxes and insurances required for running a corporation, and were complying with state law. 

On March 14, 2011 26 medical marijuana businesses were raided by the DEA in Montana.  The raids were conducted the same day a legislative committee vote was scheduled to repeal Montana's medical marijuana law.  Outlaw Hill Health was one of the businesses raided.  As a result of the raid the business was dissolved.  For the following year I continued to develop parts of OHHSI's business plan primarily focusing on healing arts, spirituality and plant medicine (non-cannabis).  I eventually created another business called Cardinal Consulting, which is still in existence.  It is a holistic health consultation practice and I am the sole proprietor.

On March 18, 2012 I was indicted by the federal government on 7 counts of manufacture and distribution of marijuana, facing the possibility of up to 40 yrs of mandatory prison time.  You cannot use state medical marijuana laws as a defense in federal court, because they still violate the federal controlled substances act.  After exhausting all possible constitutional options with my attorney, it was in the best interest for my future to accept a plea agreement.  On Sept 13, 2011 I plead guilty to maintaining a drug involved premises. It carries no mandatory minimum and the judge can sentence me to whatever he wants.  I will be sentenced on Jan 3, 2013. 

Part of the plea agreement requires me to pay $470,000 in restitution to the federal government.  But if I can come up with $50,000 by Dec 14, 2012, then the restitution will be nullified and I will owe no more money.  If I do not come up with the money then the government will auction my farm and I will essentially be a debtor for the remainder of my life.

Through all of these obstacles I have still continued to develop my farm into a place of healing, and am dedicated to helping those that are sick.  Though I feel I have been oppressed by the federal government, I have chosen to not let that deter me from the healing path.  I work with many sick people and currently have patients with cancer, MS, Hepatitis C, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, kidney failure, liver failure, post traumatic stress, addiction, and spiritual afflictions.  Through the use of plants, diet, alternative healing arts, ceremony, and the Lakota sweat lodge, people are able to access an alternative to traditional western medicine.

So I come to the people asking for help.  I am a very prideful person and asking for help in this way is difficult, but I truly need help.  A donation to this cause will help preserve the healing farm.   It will also help those that come to me for healing, and allow me to continue this work.   To further understand the work I do you may check out my facebook page, [email redacted], and please know that if you, or others you know of, are in need of healing I am available for consultation. 

Please forward this website on to anyone you might know who is sympathetic to this cause. 

Thank You,  Lucas Mulvaugh
