The fight for safe access and patient’s rights throughout San Diego County is in full swing and we need your help!
This month in partnership with Canvass for a Cause our chapter has launched the signature gathering effort in Imperial Beach to place the Safe Access Ordinance of Imperial Beach on the City’s ballot in November 2012. If passed the initiative would overturn the city’s current ban on safe access and replace it with reasonable regulations and zoning restrictions for collectives and cooperatives wishing to operate in Imperial Beach.
Today, there will be a weekly volunteer meeting in Imperial Beach at the campaign headquarters (1233 Palm Ave) at 2pm, where we will be providing signature gathering and voter registration training. Anyone interested in volunteering to gather signatures in Imperial Beach, should attend this training! After the training, we will be going throughout the city to gather signatures!
On Tuesday, March 27 join us in Oceanside for the North County Chapter Meeting and on the 30th join our Chief Counsel Joe Elford for a Legal Seminar on Navigating Safe Access to Medical Marijuana through the California State and Federal Courts.
