Lisa Molyneux's Grass Club and Planning Commission Discussion on Radio Sunday

See below.
Beginning around 10:45 a.m. I'll be playing most of the Planning Commission discussion of the Greenway Cannabis Club application on Free Radio Santa Cruz on 96.3 FM and www.freakradio.org. Lisa Molyneux will be joining me on the air--probably around noon--to discuss the Planning Commission action and the upcoming City Council meeting debate.

The application comes up for a vote at City Council Tuesday July 26 in a Public Hearing as item #25, apparently scheduled at a time certain at 3 PM. The afternoon session itself starts at 2 PM session.

Lisa invites public support for her application in person, or call City Council at 420-5020, or e-mail them at citycouncil (at) ci.santa-cruz.ca.us prior to the Council meeting on Tuesday.

A letter I previously tried to post on this issue to Mayor Rotkin supporting Lisa Molyneux's application was apparently deleted by santa cruz indymedia. They have informed me that they instituted a complete blackout on any letters or communications from Becky Johnson, even when posted by third parties.

Should anyone be interested in reading her letter, it will be shortly posted at www.huffsantacruz.org, or can be obtained by e-mailing me at rnorse3 (at) hotmail.com .

I encourage others to write their own letters and e-mails to City Council--urging a change in the City law as well as endorsement of the Molyneux application.

As mentioned in past posts, city law has effectively prevented any club from opening for the past five years and bans them from opening in any commercial corridor, making access more difficult for those who need it.

If Milyneux's Greenway club opens for business (as now seems possible), it will be a major breakthrough for medical marijuana patients and a blow against the Drug War locally.

The SCPD has filed a statement opposing the opening of the club and is expected to weigh in against it at the City Council meeting Tuesday.

Lisa will also be speaking live on KSCO 8:10 AM on Monday morning at AM 1080, if I am correctly informed.

It's 101.1 FM not 96.3 FM

Last year's FRSC dial spot was 96.3; it is now 101.1 FM. My apologies for the late night flashback.
 

Americans for Safe Access Coordinator Weighs in on Molyneux Application

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: Santa Cruz Medical Marijuana Dispensary Hearing
Date: Fri, 22 Jul 2005 16:52:00 -0700
From: Rebecca Saltzman
To: asa-sf (at) lists.riseup.net

Lisa Molyneux is attempting to open a dispensing collective in the city of Santa Cruz.

In a July 21, 2005 planning commission meeting, it was decided that the location of Molyneux's proposed dispensary was 500 ft from a school zone. Current law in Santa Cruz limits dispensaries to 600 ft.

Yet, the commission unanimously approved her application and sent it on with recommendations to the city council. The recommendations
allegedly have to do with reducing the current proximity limitation, and allowing for the provision of clones on site.

The city council will meet on Tuesday, July 26, 2005 at 2pm. All of these issues as well as Molyneux's permit application will be reviewed.
Lisa would like patients and advocates to come and show their support.
