First, a million thanks to all of you who took the time to attend the meetings or write an email or letter or make a phone call – your support is what made the difference. Albany’s Canna Kitchen will be allowed to remain at 2300 Ferry St SW, Suite 1 in Albany, Oregon for the foreseeable future. It was not looking good there for a few days, so it is with a huge sigh of relief that I blog this evening!
Many thanks to Albany City Councilors Dick Olsen phone 541-926-7348 (home, email inop) (Ward 1), Ray Kopczynski firstname.lastname@example.org (Ward 2), Bill Coburn email@example.com (Ward 2) and Mayor Konopa firstname.lastname@example.org for voting for the good of the people and allowing Medical Cannabis to be made available to cardholders in Albany, Oregon. We will be submitting a press release in the next couple of days.
I’m going to send an email expressing my gratitude to the above mentioned and I hope you will consider doing the same. I also hope you will consider very carefully where you shop … With “all the businesses in the Greater Albany Chamber of Commerce” being against dispensaries in Albany, according to the chamber president Janet Steele, I do hope you will think twice before you support those businesses who are members. At the very least, you should tell them that you would have respected them more for having NO opinion than to have the president stand up and say we can go elsewhere for our medication. Remember, if we can go elsewhere for our medication, we can also go elsewhere for our security systems, personal banking, dentistry, insurance, and the like. Why on Earth would they speak out against a whole class of citizens?
So again, a huge sigh of relief and “back at it”. We’ll update you with more in short order. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and Praise the Lord!
