The Oregon Health Authority meeting on Jan. 27 at the Medford library 
was a total disaster.

OHA failed to notify the 33,000 Oregon Medical Marijuana Program 
patients who live in the Rogue Valley. OHA is totally rewriting the 
the OMMP administration rules for medical marijuana. I would like to 
think the Oregon Health Authority would notify OMMP patients of rule 
changes that will make most growers unable to provide the medicine 
they need on a daily basis. OHA is suppose to take care of the sick 
people in Oregon, not make them worse.

The OHA was totally overwhelmed with the number of people that showed 
up. OHA failed to have the conference room set up with chairs, tables 
or a working PA system. They started the meeting an hour late, and 
showed a total disconnect with OMMP patents and growers here in the 
Rogue Valley.

OHA needs to notify the OMMP patients and reschedule the meeting 
before they impose permanent rules on growers that are nearly 
impossible to comply with. This is a prime example of bureaucrats in 
northern Oregon imposing there rules on Southern Oregon!
