Actually, we need you every day, but we really need you to show up at City Hall on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 7:15 pm.  Mayor Konopa, Floyd Collins, Rich Kellum, and Bessie Johnson have said they thought they’d rewrite the ordinance that allows us to be in the Industrial Zone next to residential … and they weren’t so sure they’d “grandfather” us.  Naturally we are very concerned, it’s not just anywhere that patients can get Organic Smokeless Cannabis Remedies.

Here is their contact information, I got it from the City of Albany website.  You can write, phone, or email them as you please:   

Sharon Konopa (Mayor) 632 35th Ave SE, Albany, OR 97322 email  Phone: 541-791-0300.

Floyd Collins (Ward 1b) 754 Quarry Rd NW, Albany, OR  97321 Email: Phone: 541-928-2961.

Rick Kellum (Ward 3b) 4085 E Commercial Way SE 97322 Email: Phone:541-791-0158.

Bessie Johnson (Ward 3a) 2911 Geary St, Albany, OR 97322 Email: Phone: 541-791-2494.

These three are on the side of Cannabis patients, you could email them and congratulate them for being so wise as well as give them a “not-oft-heard” thank you:  
Dick Olsen, (Ward 1a), 
Ray Kopczynski 
(Ward 2a),
Bill Coburn, (Ward 2b),

Keep in mind that the state rules for recreational cannabis are being written now.  July 1st everyone over age 21 can possess some.  The downside is only OMMP cardholders (patient and caregiver) are able to purchase Cannabis products.  In those laws is currently a provision for cities and counties to be able to BAN dispensaries.  Wednesday, we need you there to let the city know you want/need dispensaries to be available to you.

If you cannot or do not wish to be there… at the very least please pick up the phone and give them a call to let them know how you feel about having Cannabis remedies available in our town, especially those within 300 feet of residential areas that have been approved by the city.  Again, thank you for your continued support.
