Under "Operation Weedkiller" local law enforcement officials arrested and charged seven residents.
Murphy is the director of Patients Without Time, a strong advocate for medicinal marijuana laws. The men are accused of using the organization to disguise their marijuana drug trafficking operation.
Maui police charged Murphy and the other men with a number of offenses including drug trafficking. The men are suspected of abusing medical marijuana laws for personal profit.
In the bust, authorities recovered hundreds of marijuana plants and more than $14,000 in cash. It was a joint investigation involving state and county task forces.
All of the men arrested have Maui addresses.
The seven men face possible indictments. The investigation is ongoing.
