RETAIL MARIJUANA ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Sorry- long one that will be moved to our blog by tomorrow. But I couldn’t help myself so…… lol 😂

So- did you know we have a “RETAIL MARIJUANA ADVISORY COMMITTEE”?
Hmmm- what does such entity ADVISE upon?

It says here that the role of the committee is to provide scientific input to inform public health recommendations related to retail marijuana in Oregon.

“SCIENTIFIC INPUT”

“inform public health recommendations related to retail marijuana in Oregon.

Notice their current data….does it really address either issue? I mean after all, whether you’re for or against the dirty “m” word, it IS our tax dollars paying for this SCIENTIFIC INPUT, right? Right on!

So, don’t you want to know more?

Initiative Filed in Jackson County to Prevent Discrimination Against Cannabis Grows

Initiative Filed in Jackson County to Prevent Discrimination Against Cannabis Grows

By Keith Mansur
Oregon Cannabis Connection

 

An initiative petition has been filed in Jackson County, Oregon, that will allow cannabis grows to operate on Rural Residential properties. On June 14, 2017, the county approved the petition and title for signature gathering which was filed by Sandy Diesel of Right To Grow, U.S.A. The group needs to collect 4,956 valid signatures before the August 7 deadline for inclusion in the 2017 general election on November 7th.

“The initiative is in response to the county’s discrimination against farmers and to try to prevent future discrimination,” Diesel told Oregon Cannabis Connection (OCC). “The initiative makes it so they can’t say we can’t grow cannabis on RR if they aren’t saying, for example, that we can’t grow lavender.”

They hope to gather 10,000 signatures to account for duplicates and invalid signatures that are inevitably collected by petitioners with every initiative. They have organized a meeting at 2:00pm on Friday, June 16, at the Medford Library where they will give instructions and provid training on signature gathering.

“We are doing this to protect farmers and agriculture in Jackson County in response to the counties unfair discrimination against Cannabis,” explained Diesel, who formed the activist group last year to fight the changes that have affected thousands of medical marijuana growers across the state and especially in Southern Oregon.
