City and County Meetings

Monday December 10 - 3:30PM
Berkeley Medical Cannabis Commission’s Dispensary Subcommittee meeting

City Hall, Redwood Conference Room
2180 Milvia Street, Sixth Floor
Berkeley, CA 94704
Agenda: http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/medicalcannabis

Tuesday December 11 - Gather at 2PM, Agenda item starts around 2:30PM
Sonoma County Board of Supervisors

Attention Sonoma County Patients!
Act Now to STOP Your Medical Cannabis Rights from being VIOLATED!
On December 6th, 2012, it was made public that the Board of Supervisors would be adding an item to their December 11th meeting agenda that would dramatically change the legal landscape of local medical cannabis patients' rights. These recommendations have not been vetted by community members or industry stakeholders and five days is not enough time for the Board of Directors to elicit input from their constituents on this controversial public program.

We need to attend this meeting IN FORCE to show our elected public officials that we DO NOT SUPPORT these actions!

The Medicinal Marijuana Ad Hoc Committee recommends that the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors

(1) repeal their 2006 resolution allowing for local qualified patients to cultivate up to 30 plants, which would effectively reduce the allowable number to the state mandatory minimum of 6 plants,

(2) to establish an ordinance prohibiting the cultivation of marijuana in unoccupied residential buildings and

(3) direct staff to establish a Marijuana Task Force modeled on the Sonoma County Methamphetamine Task Force.

To see the counties staff report check out:
http://www.sonoma-county.granicus.com/GeneratedAgendaViewer.php?view_id=2&event_id=20

We can create the effective and clearly united response by participating in ALL THREE of the following actions:

ATTEND THE MEETING Tuesday December 11th we will be gathering at 2 PM at the Arlene Francis Center (99 west 6th street in Santa Rosa) to carpool over to the meeting with fellow community members and activists. We will get a chance to go over talking points & practice our speeches to Board of Supervisors.

CONTACT YOUR SUPERVISORS at (707)565-2241 or reach out to them at their individual emails which are posted on the following page: http://supervisors.sonoma-county.org/

SIGN THE PETITION on Change.org: http://www.change.org/petitions/sonoma-county-board-of-supervisors-take-no-action-on-the-recommendations-of-the-marijuana-ad-hoc-committee

It is imperative that we take action now to protect patients' rights, safe access and responsible public process in Sonoma County!
For more information on participating in this community action please contact

Launching an ASA chapter is a great way to formally bring together like-minded activists in your community to work together toward ensuring safe access to medical cannabis. ASA chapters are part of a national network of ASA activists and staff who work together on a regular basis to achieve shared goals. You can find more information and tools to start a chapter on our website!
