We need your help! Every small donation matters!

There is a project launched by Compassionate Oregon and Anthony Taylor to produce a video presentation that would help convey the dire situation that is ahead for the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) program in Oregon.
They need to raises more money to help pay for the video and editing, and get more people for interviews to be in this short film. This production will benefit the medical program in the future, too, by providing a professionally done presentation to sway the hearts and minds of those unaware of the medical cannabis patient’s situation. It will be a valuable resource for those that want to convince local leaders or others that are resistant to medical marijuana limits, growing, and more.
From Anthony Taylor at Compassionate Oregon:
Save Our Patients
OMMP patients are in crisis and the legislature does not seem to care.
- From January 2015 to October 2016 patients that did not designated a grower doubled.
- Availability of medicines in dispensaries especially edibles, tinctures and oils has all but vanished. .
- The legislature and some in our own community want to move OMMP growers to OLCC.
- In the last four years only one bill has been introduced addressing patient concerns.
So what are we gonna do about it?
In an effort to re-establish patient voices in Salem, Compassionate Oregon has started a project to help with this..
Our project will:
- Present the side of patients and doctors in the OMMP and re-establish their voice in Salem via a video-taped presentation of patients, physicians and other health care professionals.
- Paint a broader picture of what patients are facing when dealing with the medical establishment as a cannabis patient.
- Offer a path forward with a brief outline of proposed legislation that will help eliminate many of the problems patient’s now face.
We have already video-taped Dr. Janice Knox and family, Clifford Spencer, long time patient advocate and Tom Burns. We are also scheduled to roll tape on Kim Hutchinson, Director of Nursing for Our House and are currently scheduling patients to add to our arsenal.
We will need your help and here is what you can do.
