subject : San Jose Cannabis PROTEST tomorrow! 6-15-10
Please join the SJCBC (San Jose Cannabis Buyers Collective), Pharmers
Health Center Cooperative, and Union Local 13 in our protest to protect
all medical cannabis in San Jose on both June 15th (TOMORROW!, at the
next city council meeting, from 1PM to 7PM) AND June 22nd , the day they
plan to pass this ordinance.
The San Jose ï¿½emergency ordinanceï¿½ is now scheduled for June
22nd. The City's plan is to pass an ï¿½emergency ordinanceï¿½ as
the first step towards their goal of chasing all medical cannabis out of
San Jose! In doing so, they are violating the civil rights of medical
patients, invading their privacy, endangering the safety of patients,
small business operators, the entire community, and even the city itself
(through the legal consequences of their actions). The City Attorney's
office looks at this as a way to generate revenue for the city. The City
plans to sue legally operating collectives, and they plan to force the
collectives to pay for the cities legal fees.
The first protest rally will be 6/15 (TOMORROW) and start at 1PM. Our
plan is to draw awareness to the issues, promote the rally on the 22nd,
and show our council members that we're not playing around. The founder
of the SJCBC (Dave Hodges) will be out there until at least 7PM. We will
have snacks and drinks across the street on 4th st.
The second protest will on the 22nd from 12PM to 2PM, leading into the
city council meeting
For those who are not aware, the regulations that concern us the most,
and emphasize our point:
* All collective members must be San Jose residents
* A patient can only join 1 collective!
* Collectives must be 1,000 feet away from any sensitive use
* No sales of anything! Collectives can only provide cannabis, no
other products or services
* Only 10 collectives allowed, chosen using a lotto system
* Collective member info and records must be review-able by the city
* All medication must be produced on site
Suggestions for signs:
Don't take away our privacy, MEDICAL cannabis patients have rights
10 collectives is not enough! No caps on medical cannabis!
Fair regulations for medical cannabis!
Don't chase sick patients out of town!
Moms for safe cannabis!
Christians for safe cannabis!
Parents for safe cannabis!
Medical patients have rights! Prop 215, SB420, and the AG
Guidelines. Don't violate our Civil Rights!!
Neighbors for safe cannabis!
Treat cannabis like any other business!
Marijuana is Propaganda! Cannabis is Medication
Medical Cannabis is here to stay in San Jose!
2 x 3ft signs are the best as you will be allowed to take them
into council chambers with you.
Poster/foam-board has good weight & stiffness, more expensive but
much easier to hold and use
Don't forget to check your spelling!
