Dear Medical Cannabis Community,

 

RE: Re: HB 4834, HB 4851, HB 4853, HB 4856

 

 

 

The above referenced bills were adopted by the House Judiciary

Committee. Very soon these bills will be on the House floor for further

amendments with the final vote requiring a 75% super majority.

 

Operation 26%'s objective is designed as a full scale, grass roots,

community response aimed at reaching the Democrats that are split,

undecided or ununiformed on this issue and blocking a super majority yes

vote. The Democrats in both the House and Senate will be asked to

advance these bills; they need to hear the voice of this communities'

opposition in numbers. Please join us in making a difference by

contacting the below listed Representatives, via phone, email, letter

and visiting them in person. Each one of them has the power to stop

these bills from advancing. We have provided a form letter addressing

the bills directly, but please feel free to write your own. We would

encourage those involved to add suggested letters as well as the

response and experience they receive from their interactions

 

 

 

Please let your voice be heard by:

 

 

 

1. Cutting and pasting the letter below (or your own) into an email, and

then sending it to each of the Representatives' email addresses listed

below.

 

2. Printing the letter and mailing it via US mail.

 

3. And most importantly call, call, call the Representative (see

telephone numbers listed below) and explain to them why the proposed

amendments fail to address the real concerns of patients and caregivers,

and feel free to use the specific talking points that address the

proposed Bills directly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talking points for conversations with the Representatives:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. The Judiciary Committee said that they were working with different

medical marihuana groups but not a single medical marihuana advocacy

group approves of the bills. Watch the tapes from the hearings.

 

2. Patients and Caregivers are being denied the right to present a

medical marihuana defense, despite very clear language in the

initiative. During the hearings one of the committee members was quoted

as saying "that seems un-American."

 

3. Nearly three years after it was passed, the Act still has not been

properly implemented, with registration cards showing up late and no new

conditions having been added despite multiple submissions and petitions.

 

4. When I signed up for the program, I believed that law enforcement

would not have access to the registry. HB 4834 violates our most basic

rights to privacy, as outlined in the act. It is unfair to change the

rules in such a drastic way after the program has begun.

 

5. Legislators and law enforcement continue to fail to realize this

is a medical issue, protected by HIPAA and aimed at helping the people

of Michigan experience relief.

 

6. HB 4856 criminalizes behavior that that is the norm for a

possessing and transferring any other medication including prescription

narcotics.

 

7. HB 4853- which should require a 75% vote criminalizes patients'

safe access for acquiring medicine and limits the protections set out in

the initiative.

 

8. HB 4851 is unneeded because Lara has recently published its

guidelines for medical marihuana certification, addressing this issue as

a private health issue and not a public safety issue. The issue of

locked enclosed facility is before the Michigan Supreme Court and

additionally effectively makes the transportation of any cannabis plant

illegal.

 

9. Additionally and for unknown reasons the amendment to guarantee a

right to present a medical marihuana defense to a jury, was amended,

quoting a Representative "this seems so un-American."

 

10. HB 4834 is the most horrifying allowing access by the loosely

defined "law enforcement official" access to the registry. Over 130,000

patients and numerous caregivers had been promised and believed that

their registry information would be kept private. To honestly ensure

these protections "law enforcement officials" should instead be required

to get a warrant signed by a neutral and detached magistrate. This is

the procedure for obtaining a warrant for the search of someone's home,

and stands as a more acceptable approach. Additionally Law Enforcement

Officers can already verify the validity of a medical marijuana

patient's registry ID card through the Department of Licensing and

Regulatory Affairs.

 

11. In early March of 2012, LARA announced it had purchased a new

printer which would be installed by the end of the month. We have yet to

see it put into use, if it even exists. It has been 4 years and more

empty promises.

 

12. What's more patients and caregivers are no safer than they were

prior to 2008, when 63 percent of the voters in Michigan mandated a

change.

 

13. Based on the above factors and a lack of effort to keep Michigan

residents, namely patients and caregivers, safe under the current law, I

strongly urge you to vote no on all House bills relating to medical

marijuana.

This is a great plan. Thanks Michael!

The sample letter:

 

 

Dear Representative ,

 

Re: HB 4834, HB 4851, HB 4853, HB 4856

 

As a Michigan voter I was very disappointed to learn that this

Legislature is considering amending the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act

(MMMA). For the past four years we have watched the medical marihuana

community beg and plead for the Medical Marihuana Program to

 

1. End the 6 month delays in getting the registry cards out to patients,

 

2. Add new conditions to the program such as PTSD, and

 

3. Ensure the privacy of the patients and caregivers as they were

promised in the initiative and the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act.

 

The proposed Bills do nothing to recognize the MMMA as a private health

issue rather than a public safety issue. The four bills that recently

passed the Judiciary Committee which suggest an attempt to "fix" the

Medical Marihuana Act do nothing to address the real concerns of

patients and caregivers. After many months of dialogue through

supposedly bipartisan workgroups, not one Medical Marihuana organization

or group supports the Bills.

 

HB 4856, which should require a 75% vote, criminalizes behavior that

that is the norm for possessing and transferring any other medication,

including prescription narcotics.

 

HB 4853, which should require a 75% vote, criminalizes patients' safe

access for acquiring medicine and limits the protections set out in the

initiative.

 

HB 4851 is unneeded legislation because LARA has recently published its

guidelines for medical marihuana certification, addressing this issue as

a private health issue and not a public safety issue. The Definition of

"locked enclosed facility" is before the Michigan Supreme Court; the

definition proposed by the legislature effectively makes the

transportation of any cannabis plant illegal.

 

Additionally, and for unknown reasons, the amendment to guarantee of a

right to present a medical marihuana defense to a jury was removed.

During the hearings one of the committee members was quoted as saying

"that seems un-American."

 

 

 

HB 4834 is the most horrifying, allowing access by the loosely defined

"law enforcement official" to the registry. Over 130,000 patients and

numerous caregivers had been promised and believed that their registry

information would be kept private. To honestly ensure these protections

"law enforcement officials" should instead be required to get a warrant

signed by a neutral and detached magistrate. This is the procedure for

obtaining a warrant for the search of someone's home, and is the more

acceptable approach. Additionally Law Enforcement Officers can already

verify the validity of a medical marijuana patient's registry ID card

through the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs and the LEIN

system.

 

Finally, patients and caregivers are no safer than they were prior to

2008, when 63 percent of the voters in Michigan mandated a change.

 

These bills are a needless infringement on patient privacy and rights

and I ask you to vote "no."

Five down so far... :sword:

 

I inserted the following into the letter:

 

"My wife and I are BOTH totally and permanently disabled. So, before you take away our rights and our protections that 63% of the electorate voted for in November 2008 (and having received a majority of the vote in every single county in our state) we hope you will consider the ramifications of your actions to two people - along with hundreds of thousands of other patients - who get relief from medical cannabis without having to take a vast and myriad assortment of highly addicting and deadly internal organ destroying narcotics and opiate based pain medications. Help us. We hurt enough as it is."

I know from my experiences as a public official its a much more positive experience for me to be contacted by my supporters than to have a group of angry voters yelling at me. There are several house members who feel the same. Adding your personal story about why and how medical marijuana has helped you may garner some support for our cause as well.

Right on, Dizledot!

 

I just finished the 9th e-mail (Bauer's). Now, it's on to Bledsoe and the rest of them.

 

When I get done with these, I'll sit down in my softer :rolleyes: chair and begin the phone calls until I've reached someone in each and every office.

 

The snail mail will be dropped off at the post office late tonight so it goes out first thing in the morning. I can't do a lot but I can damned sure do this!

This always helps.

 

 

I just realized I needed to make another small change to the letter.

 

"2. Add new conditions to the program such as PTSD, and countless other conditions that can be treated and alleviated through varying forms of cannabis therapies.

Michael,

 

This is the sort of leadership that I have been looking for, I hope that you will enlist others with your leadership skills to help lead us on a winning path. It is through your leadership and others that we will get the right thing accomplished. I will do all of the above things that you have asked of me and will also try to get others to follow. Thank you for stepping up to the plate.

 

P.S. You know that it is not to late to throw your hat into the political arena, we could use a voice of reason such as yours. I think that you should think long and hard about this if you haven't already. I'd love to help in anyway possible if you decide to run for an office. I'm a grunt who knows how to follow directions and I want to help.

I have 16 stamps :thumbsu:

 

Looks like the better half needs to pick up some more

 

For those of us who have a hard time getting out you can order stamps direct now and your mail person puts them in your box . So if thats a problem for anyone give your local PO a call or check out the Online site . Always ask for forever stamps so they work even if there is a rate increase . Good project !
