(SALEM, Ore.) - Campaign for the Restoration and Regulation of Hemp (CRRH), along with several other cannabis organizations, will be participating in Cannabis Lobby Day at the Oregon State Capitol on Monday, February 8, 2016. A press conference is scheduled for 12 noon.
The free speech event, will feature speakers, music and vendors until 5pm.
On February 2nd, the Joint Committee for Marijuana Legalization held a Public Hearing to discuss HB 4014 and SB 1511. Hundreds attended, but only a fraction were allowed to testify due to time restriction.
HB 4014, makes changes to laws regulating production, processing, sale, use and governance of cannabis. As citizens, we must protect the OMMP and continue the fight for patient rights and access to medicine.
SB 1511, directs Oregon Liquor Control Commission to register qualified marijuana producers, marijuana processors, marijuana wholesalers and marijuana retailers for purposes of producing, processing and selling marijuana and usable marijuana and medical grade cannabinoid products, cannabinoid concentrates and cannabinoid extracts.
We will be rallying to prevent over-regulation of marijuana under M91 by the OHA, OLCC, OAC and ONI that could hinder, rather than aid, the creation, regulation and stabilization of legal marijuana related businesses.
Today at 9:00 a.m., House Business and Labor Committee is discussing HB 4094, a bill which exempts financial institutions that provide financial services to marijuana related businesses, researchers and laboratories from any criminal law of this state that has element that may be proven by substantiating that person provides financial services to person who lawfully possesses, delivers or manufactures marijuana or marijuana derived products.
The bill would let more pot businesses get financial services and help with accountability and security issues.
The following is a list of confirmed speakers for rally at noon. Several are available for media interviews after their speeches.
All are encouraged to bring signs for the rally. Beyond the speakers listed, others who wish to speak will be allowed 5 minutes at the lectern. The footage from the speeches will be mailed to every member of the Joint Committee of Marijuana Legalization and media outlets.
