Tenth Amendment, U.S. Constitution: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, OR TO THE PEOPLE.

Article 1, Section 1, Oregon Constitution: Natural rights inherent in people. We declare that all men, when they form a social compact are equal in right: that all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety, and happiness; and they have at all times a right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.

To the County of Coos

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, HEREBY PETITION the Coos County Board of Commissioners to not infringe on the rights of self-governance of the citizens of Coos County by altering the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act that was passed by the citizens of Oregon and of Coos County in particular.

Whereas the citizens of Coos County believe that as of 06/19/2015 the state of Oregon has adequately legislated rules for the marijuana industry in ORS 475.300-475.346.

Whereas we believe, and have expressed this belief through our own legislative action and/or inaction, that it would be best for Coos County to adopt those rules and not create another layer of bureaucracy, which would only harm patients ability to obtain and possess a safe, adequate and affordable supply of medicine (meanwhile further burdening the taxpayer).

Whereas the medical marijuana patients, while considering any rules, should be priority. As patients and citizens we want to have safe access to our medicine and continue our quality of life.

Whereas we the citizens ask the County Commissioners to hold off on any new rules for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries or growing operations except for amending the zoning ordinance to allow a Dispensary in a C1 zone, and to dispense recreational marijuana. We suggest a one year moratorium to allow the County Commissioners enough time to gain a sufficient understanding of the medical marijuana industry, and take that time to learn and formulate rules that make sense; that protect patients and their quality of life, as well as property rights. We believe that to move forward at this time with limited knowledge of the industry and patients would be a mistake and cause serious harm to citizens, patients, and property owners.
