More Measure M Madness

Hello, patients! As you already know, the staff at Humboldt Relief opposes Measure M. We urge you all to vote NO on M on Tuesday, March 8th, 2011. Here’s some more information about this ballot initiative, courtesy of the Greater Los Angeles Caregivers Alliance:

OPPOSITION TO THE LOS ANGELES MARIJUANA TAX GROWS

Los Angeles, California
February 23, 2011

Furious at the behavior of the Los Angeles City Council, which has voted to choose who may operate medical cannabis collectives via a lottery, a coalition of activists, patients and patient rights groups have vowed to oppose Measure M on the March ballot. The 5% tax generated by Measure M would provide the money needed to establish the lottery.

“The Los Angeles City Council is using a lottery, rather than selecting the oldest facilities with clean operating records and allowing them to serve the patient community. To demand patients to pay a tax, which would then be used to gamble away patient safety, is simply unacceptable,” remarked Yamileth Bolanos, President of the Greater Los Angeles Collective Alliance.

Measure M would impose a 5% tax on medical cannabis acquired in the City of Los Angeles. Patients already pay a sales tax of 9.75%, making the combined taxes a patient would pay for medical cannabis a whopping 14.75%.

A coalition of the oldest medical cannabis cooperatives and collectives met on Wednesday, February 9, picking up Anti-Measure M materials for patient education as well as voter registration forms.

“I don’t mind paying the tax,” said one, “but playing Russian Roulette with patient safety while simultaneously forcing the sick and dying to pay for it is morally repugnant.”

It’s estimated that medical cannabis patients number over 200,000 in the City of Los Angeles, and the number grows every day.

The Anti-Measure M coalition has established a web-site at: http://www.notaxonmedicine.org/ It will be conducting events around the city to educate patients as well as voters on the dangers of a lottery.

The first of these events was an “Activist Boot Camp” conducted by Americans For Safe Access on February 18th and 19th. Over a two day period, patients were given all the tools they need to defeat Measure M.
