Dear friends of medical cannabis,
Below is an email we received from a local patient named Shannon who has had her garden threatened due to the medical cannabis ban put in place by the Sac County Board of Supervisors. It represents one of many incidents that we have recently heard about as we enter the growing season.
The Patients Access to Regulated Medical Cannabis Act of 2012 removes this ban and returns a patient's right to cultivate, as well as establishing over 20 new dispensaries n the county.
I live in Sacramento County and just planted a week ago.. The Sheriff just left and told me I had to dig it all up in 24hrs. Is this true? I've been a farmer for years and never had this problem, although I just moved to this house. Can you please tell me if this is true? I honestly believe my neighbor called :-(
Patients are directly under attack. If we can qualify the initiative for the ballot prior to the end of June we may be able to roll back some of this overzealous enforcement. Please help us to make a difference.
We have almost 20,000 signatures and they are beginning to pour in by the thousands. We need money to pay for the final signatures to qualify it for the November election. To help us reach our goal you can visit www.RegulateSac.org and either click on the donate button there, or visit our donation site directly here: https://secure.piryx.com/donate/he3EtIgN/CSPARC/signatures.
We also need volunteers to help with signature gathering and validation. To sign up visit: http://www.regulatesac.org/volunteers
Anything you can do to help us to return access and the right to cultivate to people like Shannon would be most appreciated. Thanks for your support.
