Flood her with emails voicing your feelings of injustice and backdoor dealings. Thank you for your comments and for your participation in the rulemaking process. I will pass your comments along to the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.

There are numerous reasons why this increase is unacceptable to us, especially those that are low income, sick and terminally ill on SSD or SSI. As it stands with the new schedule I personally have to pay $80 for my card and then another $50 to continue with the same grower that I have right now. On a fixed income where do I get $130.00? It is wrong and unfair that those on SSI get a better price break, What about people that are not on low income? I'm still confused as to why this increase is even needed as the OMMP is a self supporting program (how many programs can say that?) I hear you want to use this extra to fund "pet' projects". Are these projects going to say "This program is brought to you by medical marijuana"? It should be since we will be funding them if you continue with this price increase. I still can't understand why if something isn't broken that you want to change it. The saying goes "if it ain't broke don't fix it. Isn't that what you are doing fixing something that isn't broke? I am shaking my head over the shame you are bringing upon yourselves. I'm sure my letter won't mean squat to you. It seems that public opinion doesn't seem to matter in this case. I'm curious why you even bothered to have open meetings in regards to this proposal if our voices don't count. More and more our voices are being silenced all the time and this is another prime example of that. "I strongly recommend these proposed amendments to administrative rules in chapter 333, division 8, which increased OMMP registration fees, include a sunset clause that would effectually return the OMMP fees to its pre-October 1, 2011 structure on July 1, 2013 or whenever the revenue for the 'other' programs has been raised, whichever comes first. SB 5529, the impetus for this fee increase, is a spending bill for the current biennium, ending on June 30, 2013, with no requirements or provisions beyond this date. Because the fee increase is a great hardship to many low-income and seriously-ill cardholders and potential cardholders, and because there is no legislative direction or requirement to charge these exorbitant fees, and because there is no need for the excess revenue, and because an administrative rule changing process to lower the fees would cost the OMMP tens of thousands of dollars, it would be highly irresponsible to not add a sunset clause." (by Todd Dalotto ommp card holder) I would appreciate a return to my email directly answering the questions I have raised along with a proposal. As a member of the public and a patient on the OMMP, I deserve to have this answer. Thank you for you time Source: OMMP Fee Changes
