Compassion and Common Sense
Patients Rally at San Bernardino Board Meeting to Celebrate Opening of First Legal Collective in Inland Empire and Demand that San Bernardino Do the Same

Inland Empire’s First Licensed Medical Marijuana Collective Opens in Palm Springs Tuesday, May 25 and Patients Rally at San Bernardino County Board Meeting the same day asking Board to enact a similar ordinance and reproach Supervisors Biane and Gonzales for not following through on their personal commitments to do the same

On Tuesday, May 25, Cannahelp will open in Palm Springs as the first legally licensed medical marijuana collective in the Inland Empire. Patients in San Bernardino County will go before the Board of Supervisors that same day to decry the failure of San Bernardino County to enact a similar ordinance.
The medical marijuana collective moratorium enacted by San Bernardino County will expire on June 19 and medical marijuana patients and advocates will return to the San Bernardino Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, May 25 to find out what the Board’s intentions are and why San Bernardino County can’t do what Palm Springs did.

Patients will remind the board of the commitments made to enact a medical marijuana collective ordinance and the inability of the County staff to write one. They will again request information on the six secret meetings held by County staff over the last year. They will especially remind Supervisors Paul Biane and Josie Gonzales of the commitments that they personally made and failed to live up to.

Patients are going to ask again that the county set about drafting and implementing an ordinance to allow for medical marijuana collectives and this time they want a committee to oversee the drafting of an ordinance just like what was done in Palm Springs.

The Patient Rally for Access at the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors meeting begins at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 25. Patients will rally in front of the County Administration Building at 385 N. Arrowhead, San Bernardino where the Board meets with speakers, signs to wave and cheering the cars, trucks and assorted other vehicles that honk in support.. When the public comment section comes up, patients and advocates will go into the Board chamber and make 3 minute presentations asking the Board to do what Palm Springs has done.
