Mr. Hanes 60 pages is a lot to wade through The continued use of the children in yo document is off putting as theyve been used to cover many misunderstandings . Cannot trust what one does not understand and yo 60 pages leaves a lot to hide behind. Could ya condense it a bit The use of safe communities” etc. would seem to imply that they are not safe now and that with this document make em safe hmm. Think of it as the voter would and has to read through alla the verbiage – can you condense it Might help in making us safe.

The measure also intends to promote individual freedom and create a fair enforceable set of taxes and regulations for the commercial cannabis industry.

Stop AB266 and SB643!! Fax the Capitol!

From: votedebbietharp – January 1, 1970

Great news California Cannabis Coalition Crusaders for Patient’s Rights Patient Advocacy Network Axis of Love and several other statewide activists just completed a conference call with Senator Bonta’s office regarding the changes to AB266. The good news is that they have dropped the arbitrary July 1 2015 date for provisional licenses. In fact they have dropped the provisional licenses altogether. In addition they have dropped all language relating to local bans. Now the bad news. They have NOT dropped the Measure D exemption. They have also not yet included language that will ensure affordability for truly needy patients. In addition they have been made aware that the restrictive definition of the word “primary caregiver” will make affordable access more difficult for those participating in the allowed small collective grows of five patients or fewer should this legislation pass despite our efforts. Bonta’s office has assured us that the votes are there to pass this legislation. First let’s prove to him that the votes for this new legislation are anything but guaranteed. Second lets fight for the provisions that will ensure sensible and compassionate access for all. The bills are now in the Governor’s office where they are being stripped down in an effort to create a piece of unified legislation between SB643 and AB266. We are asking all activists patients and providers to fax or call the Governor’s office and request three very specific things: Phone: (916) 445-2841 Fax: (916) 558-3160 Here is a word document attachment of the requests listed below: https:californiacannabiscoalition.orgwp-contentuploads201508Dear-Governor-Brown.doc Here are several easy-to-use free fax programs that can be used right from your own computer: https:faxzero.com http:www.myfax.comfree www.gotfreefax.com www.bestfreefax.com Also this Google Chrome add on provides 50 free fax pages a month for 6 months: https:chrome.google.comwebstoredetailhellofax-50-free-fax-pagebocmleclimfnadgmcdgecijlblfcmfnmhlen We are making progress See you in the Capitol tomorrow 8AM at the north entrance Dear Governor Brown It has come to my attention that you are reviewing legislation that will affect the fate of cannabis patients across the state AB266 and SB643. It concerns me that there are no provisions in these bills to ensure affordable access to cannabis for the neediest patients. Senator Bonta’s aid has ensured that he will fight for a provision in these bills that requires the appropriate task force to develop a plan for affordable access if you leave in the other specific charges for the task force as well. Otherwise it will be difficult to add this provision to the legislation at the last moment. Please leave the specific task force charges in this legislation so that this charge may be added as well. Secondly when the bill returns to the Senate we are going to push for the phrase “primary caregiver” to be changed to ensure that the small collectives of 5 or less are allowed to operate with minimum interference in an additional effort to ensure affordability for the neediest patients. Lastly the special provisions carved out for Measure D a measure that is severely tainted by the leadership of indicted union organizer Dan Rush not only endanger affordable access they also violate Prop 215. This measure is still facing litigation in the City of Los Angeles and is far from being settled. Accusations against this measure include the fact that it was a manipulated “pay to play” scheme meant to create a coercive monopoly in favor of those willing to pay off Mr. Rush and his associates for the benefit. This may have been an easy accusation to dismiss before the indictment against Mr. Rush was released–it no longer is. In addition the reasons given to the voters of Los Angeles for forcing dispensaries to operate on this quasi-legal basis were said to be in the preamble of the measure itself that there was not yet clear guidance from the state or courts for this issue. This is no longer true especially if this bill were to pass so why are the representatives from Los Angeles fighting to maintain what has become a coercive monopoly in this city Therefore the exemptions carved out for Los Angeles fly in the face of the measure’s own stated reasoning and also jeopardize the ability to enact these new bills. Additionally these exemptions add a layer of complication to enforcement of these bills’ provisions that seems nearly insurmountable. The patients and providers affected by this legislation can and will sue for an immediate injunction against enforcement should the Measure D exemptions or any other provisions that violate the intentions of Prop 215 remain. Based on the above reasoning what is there to gain by expecting the rest of the state to bend over backward to comply with the provisions of a bill that Los Angeles is specifically exempt from Strike the Measure D exemptions. This is a non-negotiable point. Thank you for your time and effort in the fight for sensible and compassionate access. — You received this message because you are part of the SaveCannabis group.

Regarding AB 266, is this the Harborside exemption?

From: votedebbietharp – January 1, 1970

IS THIS THE FUCKING HARBORSIDE EXEMPTION JUST LIKE THE MEASURE D EXEMPTION “(c) (1) In a jurisdiction that adopted a local ordinance prior to July 1 2015 allowing or requiring qualified businesses to cultivate manufacture and dispense medical cannabis or medical cannabis products with all commercial cannabis activity being conducted by a single qualified business upon licensure that business shall not be subject to subdivision (a) if it meets all of the following conditions:” IS THERE ANYTHING IN THIS BILL THAT ISN’T A SPECIAL FUCKING FAVOR TO A PAYOFF BY THE WAY THIS HAS DAN RUSH WRITTEN ALL OVER IT WHAT THE FUCK — You received this message because you are part of the SaveCannabis group.
