Sensible Washington Meeting (Spokane) 1/12/11
I went to the address that we had all decided was the address for the meeting 35 West Main St, Spokane. I was there a few minutes before the start time of 7pm and I noticed many groups meeting. I was told that the meeting that I was interested in, The Sensible Washington meeting was up stairs in a conference room. I got to the room, and at the conference table I saw Phillip Dawdy of Sensible Washington, so I was like “Oh yeah, this is it!”.
Low and behold Phillip is not representing Sensible Washington during this meeting. He is representing he “Cannabis Defense Coalition ” (CDC).
I sit down, and set up my computer for broadcasting anyway. It was a public meeting in a public location, so I figured why not.
Everyone saw me set up my camera and computer, and when the roll call took place I told everyone who I was and that I represented xCannabis.com and Sensi Life Radio.
The meeting lasted over an hour, and by the time it was over I was nearly late for work. So I packed up and got home as soon as I could.
Jessica Nuna had wrote me and asked if Phillip knew I was recording. I informed her yes, I sat next to him and he watched me setup.
But I thought it would be courteous to write Phillip and ask him if it’s ok if I post the meeting online, and if I could interview him about Sensible Washington. He has not yet wrote back and it has been about 24 hours. So I am going to post the meeting and at this point I won’t be taking it down at a later time. It has a lot of good information about the Medical Marijuana Addendum being proposed by Senator Jeanne Kohl-Well SB 5073 / HB 1100.
There are a lot of things that I disagree with in this bill, but I wanted to post it for everyone so that you can come to an informed decision on your own.
