An action alert that I received from the Oregon legalization campaign below, in regards to Oregon Senate Bill 964:

oregon marijuana

Johnny,
Please help us right now.

Today at 5 p.m., politicians in Salem are poised to pass a bill that would partially dismantle Oregon's medical marijuana system and ban state-regulated marijuana businesses. The Senate Committee on Implementing Measure 91 is planning to slip this by quickly, without any public testimony.

Public testimony is crucial because politicians need to know why this bill is so bad for Oregon. Please take a moment right now to call a few state senators and tell them them the public should have the right to be heard before the medical marijuana system is drastically changed. Phone numbers are below.

We voted to regulate, tax and legalize marijuana, NOT to have politicians push it into the criminal market and make it harder for medical marijuana patients to get life-saving medicine.

Sen. Ginny Burdick (D): 503-986-1718
