I am a non-patient grower. To me this whole thing was illegal, like taxation without representation,
sponsored by someone that will benefit financially from it.....can you say special interest!?
As a grower I cannot be reimbursed for equipment, labor, nor the stress it causes me when
something goes wrong. Bulbs need to be replaced on a regular basis. Last cheap bulbs I
bought were turning black by the third harvest. I bought a good dehumidifier just over a year
ago, and it keeps turning itself off causing a mold problem now. I work as a housekeeper, and
have lost so many jobs to the economy, so $200 is a lot of money to me to come up with at one time.
To me it all goes back to the fact that they do not view MMJ as real medicine.


if one is unwilling to accept the outcome of events such as this, and i'm not claiming it is right or wrong, your best bet is to become politically active. i'm cool with my patients paying and extra fee for me to grow their meds. those who can grow their own should. not all can, like my 83 y/o late stage alzheimer's mom. still, we have the right to grow. that is more then most.

to be truthful, if the money were earmarked for education, i would be totally willing to pay. if the sick can take care of our education system, the healthy should be able to handle the rest. yes?

I wrote everyone involved in sponsoring this bill, and my 2 representatives. I heard back from one rep stating they weren't on the committee, but they would look into it. I don't have much faith in the political system any more. I do not have the funds to run up to Portland. It does seem like Oregon has a much better program than most states, and I am grateful for that. I do like the new figures that were posted by shorty(thank you)!! If the new fees were going for education, or even the OMMP, I would feel better about it for sure!

did you check dudz link? it has three meetings at various spots throughout the state. perhaps one is close enough to you. i can relate to loss of faith, but if we do not use our muscles they will continue to weaken and become more useless.

I was going to reply to this but I seen that Dudz already did this. Thanks Dudz.

I guess the patients can look forward to paying the $200 for their growers as I don't see many growers that will pay that.



that is a fact. i am willing to grow for patients who can not, but am not willing to pay as well!

That was Shortglide's link - I take no credit for it :)

The locations are in PDX, Bend, and Medford. PDX and Bend are both about the same distance from Eugene, where Suzy lives. Medford is twice as far.

September 19th is the hearing in Portland at 9:30 at the State building Room 1B. Plus the dates in Bend and Medford. There is plenty of time and while I grant you only a few places but there is still time to go and speak up.
