I just signed the petition "Oregon State Police: Receive Training on Medical Marijuana Policy" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name and forwarding it to other list serves that you find appropriate.
Our goal is to reach 1,000 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:
If anyone would be willing to help me contact local media with this information about the petition and the youtube video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXf6Nngj90w) that would be amazing. I have a media contact list from the M74 campaign, but if anyone has an updated list I could use, that would be even better.
Any thoughts on hosting a rally around this petition? Maybe call on a few key organizations (ASA,DPA,SSDP,ACLU etc) to host patient speakers to direct messages to Obama? Anything is possible as long as we stay concise and focused. Please don't hesitate to call me directly at 503-396-9062

I spoke with OSP Lt. Pileggi from Ontario Area Command for Oregon State Police. He stated that he was completely unaware that there WAS a federal program, but that after confirming that the program DID exist, he PERSONALLY dismissed the case against Elvy and got her meds returned - which I believe Elvy confirmed on air during Russ's show the other day. I would recommend contacting Lt. Pileggi and THANKING him for returning her medicine and illustrating to him the importance of educating the LEO in OSP about the federal program AND Oregon law, since there is so much confusion. Be polite, but firm about the NEED for such education. Also let them know that there are MANY in our community that would be happy to assist with such an education, including Elvy! (You can reach Lt. Pillegi at 541-889-6469)
When a door opens, walk in. ;-) I spoke with him for quite some time and learned that Elvy was the FIRST federal patient that OSP has encountered (since there are only four remaining, that doesn't seem completely unlikely). I think this is quite likely true, as well, since Elvy's story had traveled and the Info officer in PDX, Dan Swift, was familiar with the incident with Elvy as well (but neither of the two officers were aware of another traffic stop which occurred the same night - in short I think Elvy was the talk of the "cop shop" the next few days - aka door is OPEN for educating them, even if only via a phone call).
