This page tells about we, the people, here at MERCY. Here you can view our mission statement, more about us, some notes about the issue.
MERCY was founded in 2003 to help and advocate for those involved with the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP). MERCY is a virtual org - we do not currently have an office - based in the Salem area and staffed on a volunteer basis. Learn more more about our history and current status.
MERCY networks with like-minded people from around the world on the issue, sharing news and information on subjects from how to grow and apply medical cannabis to how to change laws to allow it. We do this thru our website with pages set up to help and organize by Region, Condition, Profession, Categories and many more Classes. Learn more about our Networking.
more About Us
Our purpose is to get medicine to patients in the short-term while working with them to establish their own independent sources. To this end we provide, among other things, ongoing education to clinics, individual physicians and other healthcare providers about the OMMP, cannabis as medicine and doctor rights in general.
MERCY is a strong patient advocate, which can manifest itself in a variety of ways. One of these has been maintaining lines of communication with other patient advocates and the OMMP director and workers. At the same time we attempt Doctor education and support programs, and Patient and Caregiver projects like learning to grow and different methods for consumption. These are especially important for the first time medical cannabis user as well as those unable to apply their medication.
Over the years MERCY has assisted hundreds of thousands of people in getting their card (or, Authorization, as the case may be) as well as helping them find access to excess medicine. Our objective is to get medicine to patients in the short-term while working with them to establish their own independent sources. Our philosophy is one of teaching people to fish, rather than being dependent upon others.
One strategy of the organization is to help people to change the laws so that action like this isn't necessary any more. So, we advocate reasonable, fair and effective marijuana laws and policies, and strive to educate, register and empower voters to implement such policies. Lasting change will require that each citizen be active enough to register and effectively vote. You, and only you, the people, can make it happen. We will help in any way we can, but you have to tell us what you need. Work with us to make this your "tool shed", or resource guide, to successful medical cannabis utilization and activism.

Why Do This? What is the Issue?
It is about equal risk of arrest and treatment under the law, about reforming laws specifically written to subvert this basic American ideal.
This is about mean and greedy people using YOUR government to set up a politically and religiously driven boondoggle, including a publicly funded propaganda machine to justify it all.
The issue, for us, is about ending government waste and abuse. We intend to do this by ending cannabis prohibition and, thereby, all the nonsense about medical validity. To release the sick, free the hemp and guarantee equal rights and access to the truth to even the least among us.
We intend to free our brothers and sisters from the prison camps, to make hemp an option for Oregon's farmers and to end persecution of patients not so much due to their choice of medicine but because they are poor and powerless.
Our current focus is on protecting and supporting patients in the OMMP (Oregon Medical Marijuana Program) and in the process educate our neighbors. Our goal is independence for our Patient Members in the short term and freedom for the rest by ending cannabis prohibition.
Check us out, drop a line. Be a part of the change as you help make it happen. Learn more about ...
