EMERGENCY LEGISLATIVE RESPONSE!
From Anthony Taylor of Compassionate Oregon:
“We are asking everyone to send the letter out this weekend so when members come in on Monday their inboxes are full. Then on Monday we start calling members at 8:00 and keep calling all day long until they go into the hearing at 5:00. Then we will start up with phone calls again Tuesday and all day Wednesday.”
Lets help block this bill!! We will make it easy…3 steps…
1. Cut and paste the text below into your email..
(Subj line:) I oppose SB 936
Dear Committee members,
I oppose SB 936 for the following reasons:
SB 936 limits the number of plants anyone may produce to 24. This could leave well over 12,000 patients without a grower.
SB 936 restricts patients or their growers from producing medicine for no more than four patients at the same time. This will also severely limit the number of patients that will be able to find a grower.
SB 936 allows the OHA to inspect grow sites including those with 12 plants or less.
SB 936 requires OHA to establish a system to track and regulate the production of marijuana by a cardholder or grower.
Reporting requirements are so restrictive including keeping all records for 7 years, that some growers will choose to stop growing for patients
I do not support plant limits in general but SB 936 is so restrictive that patients could be left without a grower to provide their medicines for them.
I urge the Committee to reconsider their support of SB 936 in favor of HB 3400.
Signed, (ADD NAME)
