Rally, Lobby, Network for the OMMP

Come fight for fair Cannabis laws. Gather with others of the Medical Cannabis Community to (a) attend hearings on bills this session, (b) Lobby your representative on the bills and issue in general, (c) network and share news and information, and more.

The Marijuana Legalization Committee hearing for SB 1598 ( Agenda ) will be broadcast on laptop, with external speakers, for people who may be testifying (should it become a public hearing) but not able to be in the main meeting chambers (Hearing Room 343). There will be a couple of canopies as there is expected to be some rain. Please be prepared and dress accordingly.

Meetings with staff, and with legislators have been scheduled regarding some of these topics. There will be a letter delivery procession, with district legislators, as well as members of the committee, getting letters from their constituents, for those unable to attend, or those who are unfamiliar with navigating the halls.

It is neither assumed or expected that any of these are the opinion or aim of those not present. Nor is embracing all of them expected for participation or collaboration. The spirit is in protecting Oregon medical program, offering opportunity to Oregonians in their home state, and helping to establish a system that incorporates all the aspects of the cannabis community, as well as their host communities.

See Talking Points and Testimony that folks can use as a template in developing their testimony or written comments.

Your Reps | Your state Senator and Representative can help address your concerns. If you're not sure who represents you, you can find your guy, or gal, here: Find Your Legislator << This all is important, because every one of them will be voting on the bills that have been introduced regarding cannabis this session.
