The Disappearance of Mekayla Bali and Possible 2019 Sighting

I've been lurking this sub for a long time, but this is my first post so be gentle. :)

Mekayla Bali disappeared April 12, 2016 from Yorkton, Saskatchewan. She was possibly spotted in Edmonton earlier this year.

Timeline

April 12, 2016:

*at some point during 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., she is reported to have been at the Yorktown Bus Depot inquiring about a bus to Regina.

NOTES

Here is a post by another user that talks more about the strange aspects of the case.

POSSIBLE SIGHTINGS

There was a reported sighting of her at a casino in Calgary, but I can not find a source. If anyone has a link to that particular sighting, I will edit it in.

Now, for the one I'm the most interested in. A man possibly spoke to Mekayla in Edmonton earlier this year.
Paula Bali, Mekayla’s mother, said a man called her on Aug. 8 and said he believes he spoke to Mekayla outside the Highrun Club in Edmonton back in March. He didn’t know Mekayla was missing until he came across a recent social media post about her. Remembering the incident, he called the tip line on the post and spoke to Bali.
“She was just outside. He had spoken to her for a few minutes,” said Bali, recounting what the man had told her. “I think part of what stuck out to him was that she didn’t seem like … a girl that should be in that area. He felt like she seemed very sweet and naive.”
It was this description of the woman’s personality more than a description of her physical appearance that makes Bali hopeful the woman was Mekayla.
“When he described the person she was, I was kind of like, ‘Yeah, that sounds like Mekayla,” she said. “She is a very gentle soul and she comes across that way.”

This one sticks out to me a lot. I really feel like this was her. If it is, how did she get to Edmonton. Did she simply run away? Did someone groom her or take her? Does she want to be found? The thing that sticks out to me the most is that according to the man, she introduced herself using her REAL NAME. If she didn't want to be found, why would she introduce herself as Mekayla? I've seen the theories that she's being trafficked but I have never thought that was the case here. Now, whether she left willingly or not? I don't know. I really do believe it was Mekayla Bali he spoke to outside that bar. I'm hoping for an update soon.

Thoughts?

EDIT: a word.

So Cal Medical Patients You are Losing Your Right to Safe Access

The following text is an email received from my doctor who has recommended my use of medical marijuana for the past three years.
EMERGENCY:: OCEANSIDE CITY COUNCIL MEETING JANUARY 20th
Hello Everyone,
Your city council voted to ban delivery services in your town at the last city council meeting on January 6th. Every citizen of Oceanside had the opportunity to come to the meeting and express their thoughts on the ban. Thanks to many of our patients showing up on such short notice, we had over 30 people opposed to the ban. There was 1 person there, representing some "family values" group, who got up and spoke all the old rhetoric, ie, "marijuana is a gateway", studies have shown that when kids are exposed to marijuana, they will use it", all the usual garbage that we have been hearing our whole lives, all of which have been proved wrong by science and psychological studies. So, with 30+ against and 1 for, the city council voted for the ban. Only Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery was swayed by our argument and voted against the ban.
They have voted to not allow delivery services in "their" city, saying that "they know that the majority of the citizens of Oceanside don't want marijuana in their town." Again, these so-called people for the ban, had the same opportunity to have their voices heard and didn't bother.
Speak out for your rights or they will be lost forever. Please come to Oceanside city hall before 5 PM on January 20th and ask for a "request to speak" form. The bylaws on the city council website, state that each person shall have "a maximum of three minutes" and that any person can give their time to another person who is speaking. Although it uses the word "maximum", it later says that MORE time can be given at the discretion of the presiding officer, but it NEVER says that they can give us LESS time or that they can deny us the right to give our time to someone else. Despite this, Mayor Wood attempted to allow only 1 minute to speak. Esther Sanchez, suggested that we be allowed at least 2 minutes, so that we may actually have a chance to say what we intend. When Michelle tried to give her time to one of our elderly patients, Jimbo said that we cannot give our time to others.
I carefully reviewed the entire City Council manual, policy and procedures, and it does not state this anywhere. When a city council member does not follow the procedures and protocol, we have the right to ask that the member be censured. I ask that all patients come to the meeting and request that Mayor Wood be censured for not following the policies concerning the public's right to speak.
The only person who voted to oppose the ban was Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery, and if you care about your rights, he should be the only one who we re-elect. Let us not forget that Jim Wood doesn't even want to be mayor any longer. He ran for county supervisor and only begrudgingly returned to his post as mayor because he lost. Let's let him know that we don't want him any longer.
What the ban entails......any delivery driver providing medical cannabis, if "caught" in Oceanside, will be subjected to arrest, as a drug dealer. That's right, those people who are there to help you in safe access of your medicine, will be arrested. A representative of Oceanside police department, one that Michelle and I have personally spoken with about his desire for cannabis when he retires, got up and lied about the marijuana-related incidents in Oceanside.
He says the police are for the ban because of the great number of crimes it has caused. They claimed that there were 45 crimes related to cannabis in the city since 2012. So, over 3 years, an average of 15/year.
Statistics for alcohol related incidents, including death, DUI, fights, etc., reached over 582. In response to this, the city council voted to increase the number of hours that a person can drink publicly. Casinos are now allowed to start serving drinks at 8 am, instead of 10 am. So, 582 alcohol incidents, and they increase access to alcohol, and with 45 (which is in overestimate and not accurate) related to cannabis, they have decided on a total ban of dispensaries, including delivery services, which they somehow consider, a threat to public safety.
Understand that Vista has already passed this ban. They are planning on closing the dispensaries and are also banning delivery. Bill Gore, our sheriff, who runs unopposed each time (someone run against this ass!) plans on having his deputies arrest the drivers as drug dealers. At a private meeting with Vista city council, the Vista mayor, and our shady sheriff, the words, "we don't care about marijuana patients" literally passed their lips. They prefer that you go back to pills and the increased chance of death.
The closest "legal" dispensary is in Santee. Do you think you should have to drive 3 hrs round trip to get your medicine?
I have also contacted the governor about an amendment to this part of the law, stating that the restrictions he wants to implement for medical marijuana sound wonderful for recreational use, but asking a medical patient to drive 3 hrs or more for their medicine, not only violates each and every one of our civil rights, it also is impossible. A cancer patient, a bedridden patient, a migraine patient in the middle of a migraine, and so on, not only would be unable to get their meds, they most certainly couldn't get them safely, if forced to drive themselves, while so ill.
Do whatever you have to do to be there. If you can explain how much cannabis has improved your life, we need you there.
Prior to the meeting, I ask that each of you email and call each and every member of the city council. Tell them that they are not fulfilling their mission statement. "The City Council's mission is to represent the citizens of Oceanside, make policy decisions, exercise fiscal responsibility and authority, serve the best interests of all citizens, and ensure that Oceanside is a desirable place to live, work, do business, and to visit."
They are not even considering your needs as a patient. We should be able to obtain our meds as easily as going to CVS or a liquor store. We all know the abundance of alcohol in Oceanside. We want to have a patient collective and have the meds available for our patients thru our office, as every other physician is allowed to have a pharmacy in their office.
Please write and tell them that you want delivery services and storefronts in Oceanside with as easy access as the liquor stores and pharmacies. Tell them that they are violating your civil rights. Tell them that only those who side with marijuana patients will be voted back into office.
The city council doesn't seem to understand how many of us there are. Please forward this email to anyone you know in Oceanside who is a cannabis patient, so that there are hundreds, if not thousands of us at the meeting on January 20th. The exact time is not yet known, but for the last meeting, they had the hour for discussion listed at 6, instead of 5. With the lack of integrity rampant on that council, they tried to keep us from our chance to speak.
Mayor Jim Wood, was the son of a Navy Corpsman. Navy corpsman are usually the only members of the Navy who return with PTSD. You would think he would be understanding that our 5000+ PTSD patients need access to their meds. Instead, his law enforcement background causes him to deny you your rights. The built-in bias, is yet another reason that the mayor should be censured. He tried to censure me 3 times during the meeting. He asked to have me removed 3 times. It didn't happen.
Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery is the only one on city council who was in favor of the ban. He understands that we have a right to access our meds. Lowery works with autistic and disabled people, and I believe he understands how helpful cannabis is for these people.
Esther Sanchez seemed to be swayed by what we all said. She spoke of a close friend who chose to use cannabis when she was being treated for cancer, and she understood that it was the only thing that helped her friend. She spoke of voting for the ban, but, working on an ordinance that would work for the patients of Oceanside, but with one word from Council member Kern, she immediately voted for the ban. She was a public defender for yours. Please appeal to her sense of concern that others be able to obtain their meds, just as her friend was able to do so. Not everyone has a caregiver or someone else at home who can travel to get their meds for them. Remind her of this. She also made a comment about how there are so many delivery services in the city that are unlicensed, therefore, unregulated. City of Oceanside will not issue a license, even for a delivery service, but they wonder why there are so many operating without a license???? Also, stress how ridiculous this policy of not issuing business licenses keeps tax dollars and businesses from our city.
Jerry Kern professes to want what's best for ALL of the citizens of Oceanside, yet he doesn't even have any empathy for his fellow vets. Kern got a very cushy assignment while in the Air Force. He served in Great Britain and Camp Pendleton. It's highly unlikely that he has PTSD, but he shows no concern for the high saturation of vets in Oceanside and that they need access to their meds.
Jack Feller is also a vet. He enlisted in the Navy and got the very dangerous assignment at the Naval dental clinic on Camp Pendleton. Again, zero empathy for his fellow vets. Jack is originally from South Dakota, and he can't seem to leave his marijuana bias back in his home state.

Jack Feller 760 435 3056 [email protected].
Call over and over. Email over and over.
Finally, make sure you are registered to vote. For every election, Michelle and I try to post on our website and in our office, what candidates are for or against cannabis. Please let them know that they can say goodbye to their careers as politicians, if this ban is imposed on us. Let them know you are a voter and most certainly, get out there and vote.
https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US (register to vote)
I am going to ask that city council hold a town hall meeting. I don't want the Mayor to try to censure me again, nor should he be able to censure any of us. It was disgusting and horrifying to watch the city council vote for the ban with 30+ against and only 1 person present for the ban.
It is also imperative that you call and write to the Governor. Let Gov. Brown know that he cannot allow the cities to ban the dispensaries, as it will cause medical patients to need to drive for hours for meds. If they want to make it unobtainable for recreational use, that's fine. However, don't keep us from our meds. There is a form on the website that gets your requests to the Governor.
https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php
I know we promised no emails except for your annual reminder, but this is just too important.
Yours truly,
Dr. Paula Shore
TL;DR Local City Council votes to ban delivery services, equating delivery drivers to drug dealers, show up and speak out if you can, thanks for reading everyone.

I posted a few photos from the first week of a road trip around the USA I'm doing at the moment. Some requested a write up, so here's part 1 for anyone interested!

OK, so bear with me because I'm not the greatest with formatting. But I'll try my best!
As the title suggests, I posted some photos of the first week and a bit of a 6 month solo road trip I am currently undertaking around the USA and parts of Canada. They were received relatively well, and some people asked if I could do some updates along the way. So here's the first one and hopefully it can inspire some people to do similar!
Why?
Firstly, some background on the trip. Around about 4-5 years ago I had a pretty shitty bout with anxiety and depression. This isn't a sob story so don't feel bad for me, I'm actually quite good now. But anyway, after a few trips to a Psychologist, we both decided that it would be a good idea to set a goal that would actually get me through the days. As a university student coming to the end of my degree, starting work didn't really excite me.
So after some deliberation it was decided the only thing that excited me was travel, and no matter what type of work I got upon graduation, I would do it for about 2-3 years and save everything to put towards a 6 month road trip across North America. I actually studied American History at uni, so obviously that's what drew me here. More topical to current events, I actually took a lot of inspiration from Anthony Bourdain. Sounds made up now, but RIP.
Where?
I started planning this trip as soon as the decision was made. So if you're wondering why things are so detailed, that's probably why. Originally a lot was focussed around things with historical significance, like American Revolutionary sites, or Civil War Memorial, etc. But I've also always had a love for nature and hiking so that's where the National/State/Regional Parks come into play.
Then the love of food travel shows started to seep in. Anthony Bourdain being the main one, then a bit sillier shows like Man Vs. Food, and yes, even Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives played a role, for as much shit that Guy Fieri (deservedly) cops here. This drew me to certain cities.
I had already done a 5 week trip to the USA in 2013/14 for Christmas and NYE where I hit the main touristy spots like NYC, Vegas, LA, etc. So this trip was to focus more on the small towns, national parks, and open road.
When?
My previous trip was over Winter, so this trip had to be warmer weathegreener pastures. Originally planning to start in June, it just so happened that a sale popped up around January for return flights from Melbourne to LAX for AU$850 leaving in May and returning in November. Too good not to pass up and not that far from what I had planned anyway. Only problem is I cut it a little short because my cousin is getting married on November 10th and I couldn't miss it, so I arrive back in Melbourne the morning of... Cutting it fine, I know.
Itinerary
Now to the stuff that people will probably actually care about. My general direction that I'm heading in is a loop from LA, back to LA. That was the best looking map I could make out, but it gives you the idea. The good thing is I only have things booked about a week in advance at this stage, so it's more a 'rough' itinerary than anything.
I arrived in the country on May 20th and have a ticket home on November 8th. It was best to have a return ticket because otherwise those border guards will be on your back and you put yourself at risk of getting turned back at the airport.
May 20th - June 8th
So now to the actual good stuff, with pictures and all! Going through each place I've been, what I enjoyed there and recommendations. This will probably be the way each subsequent post will be set out, if I commit to doing them (which I have a tendency to be terrible with commitment).
Los Angeles, CA. 20/05 - 21/05:
OK, now when I say Los Angeles, I didn't actually spend any time in LA outside of the Airport. I got my car and took it straight to a place called Santa Paula, CA. I've been to LA before, spent about a week there, did everything touristy, and didn't particularly enjoy it. Not to say others wouldn't find it enjoyable, just not for me. Santa Paula itself isn't much to write about, but the drive from Santa Paul to Fresno had some cool parts.
Fresno, CA. 21/05 - 23/05:
Now I know what you're thinking, "Who the hell would go to Fresno?" I say this, because basically everyone I encountered in Fresno asked me that question. I went because it was a good base to explore the Sierra National Forest. Can't say much about Fresno, though. Also, a little side note, I'm not that proud of my photos early on. Everything is shot with my iPhone and it's taking me a little time to figure out how to get the best shot. Still in the process.
Santa Cruz, CA. 23/05 - 26/05:
Originally, I wanted to stay in Monterey for this portion. However, everything was either way too expensive or booked out, so I settled for Santa Cruz. Or more specifically, Felton, which is out the back of Santa Cruz. I was happy with the decision.
Sausalito/San Francisco, CA. 26/05 - 29/05:
I stayed in a hostel across the Golden Gate Bridge which I believe fell under Sausalito, but was in the Marin Headlands. I'd been to San Francisco previously so didn't feel the need to spend all my time in the city. I would park on the outskirts and catch the BART to downtown.
Lake Tahoe, CA. 29/05 - 31/05:
I didn't know how I was going to like Lake Tahoe, because having Nevada there and casinos around I thought it might be a little much for me. Can confirm, it's a lovely spot that far exceeded expectations.
Redding, CA. 31/05 - 2/06:
Another baffler for some people who didn't understand why I would go to Redding. This was my gateway into Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Also was an interesting little town with the giant Bethel Church) centred here.
Crater Lake National Park, OR. 2/06 - 5/06:
Based myself about 20 miles outside of Ashland, OR whilst exploring Crater Lake National Park. Stayed with this total hippie family at an Airbnb which turned out to be on a Weed Farm. I'd forgotten that it was legal in Oregon. But they were the best.
Eugene, OR. 5/06 - 7/06:
Back when I was at university, I seriously considered transferring to the University of Oregon for a year. I kinda regret not doing it, especially after being in Eugene and seeing the town/campus. I didn't take a lot of photos, mostly just walked around and took it all in.
Portland, OR. 7/06 - 9/06:
Currently in Portland and to be honest I haven't actually checked out the city itself at all. I'm planning to on my way out tomorrow, so here's what I've done so far anyway.
Summary
If anyone makes it this far, I bloody salute you. I can say already though that the last 2 and a bit weeks have been amongst the best of my life. From here, I head to Seattle tomorrow, before crossing into Canada and doing the Rockies. I'll try to make these a bit more regularly so it's not a huge chunk of writing that is terribly written and hard to read. If anyone has any questions or wants to know more, please reach out! I want to help in any way I can if you're planning a similar trip or a trip to an area I am going/have been.
Cheers!

So Cal Medical Patients You are Losing Your Right to Safe Access

The following text is an email received from my doctor who has recommended my use of medical marijuana for the past three years.
EMERGENCY:: OCEANSIDE CITY COUNCIL MEETING JANUARY 20th
Hello Everyone,
Your city council voted to ban delivery services in your town at the last city council meeting on January 6th. Every citizen of Oceanside had the opportunity to come to the meeting and express their thoughts on the ban. Thanks to many of our patients showing up on such short notice, we had over 30 people opposed to the ban. There was 1 person there, representing some "family values" group, who got up and spoke all the old rhetoric, ie, "marijuana is a gateway", studies have shown that when kids are exposed to marijuana, they will use it", all the usual garbage that we have been hearing our whole lives, all of which have been proved wrong by science and psychological studies. So, with 30+ against and 1 for, the city council voted for the ban. Only Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery was swayed by our argument and voted against the ban.
They have voted to not allow delivery services in "their" city, saying that "they know that the majority of the citizens of Oceanside don't want marijuana in their town." Again, these so-called people for the ban, had the same opportunity to have their voices heard and didn't bother.
Speak out for your rights or they will be lost forever. Please come to Oceanside city hall before 5 PM on January 20th and ask for a "request to speak" form. The bylaws on the city council website, state that each person shall have "a maximum of three minutes" and that any person can give their time to another person who is speaking. Although it uses the word "maximum", it later says that MORE time can be given at the discretion of the presiding officer, but it NEVER says that they can give us LESS time or that they can deny us the right to give our time to someone else. Despite this, Mayor Wood attempted to allow only 1 minute to speak. Esther Sanchez, suggested that we be allowed at least 2 minutes, so that we may actually have a chance to say what we intend. When Michelle tried to give her time to one of our elderly patients, Jimbo said that we cannot give our time to others.
I carefully reviewed the entire City Council manual, policy and procedures, and it does not state this anywhere. When a city council member does not follow the procedures and protocol, we have the right to ask that the member be censured. I ask that all patients come to the meeting and request that Mayor Wood be censured for not following the policies concerning the public's right to speak.
The only person who voted to oppose the ban was Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery, and if you care about your rights, he should be the only one who we re-elect. Let us not forget that Jim Wood doesn't even want to be mayor any longer. He ran for county supervisor and only begrudgingly returned to his post as mayor because he lost. Let's let him know that we don't want him any longer.
What the ban entails......any delivery driver providing medical cannabis, if "caught" in Oceanside, will be subjected to arrest, as a drug dealer. That's right, those people who are there to help you in safe access of your medicine, will be arrested. A representative of Oceanside police department, one that Michelle and I have personally spoken with about his desire for cannabis when he retires, got up and lied about the marijuana-related incidents in Oceanside.
He says the police are for the ban because of the great number of crimes it has caused. They claimed that there were 45 crimes related to cannabis in the city since 2012. So, over 3 years, an average of 15/year.
Statistics for alcohol related incidents, including death, DUI, fights, etc., reached over 582. In response to this, the city council voted to increase the number of hours that a person can drink publicly. Casinos are now allowed to start serving drinks at 8 am, instead of 10 am. So, 582 alcohol incidents, and they increase access to alcohol, and with 45 (which is in overestimate and not accurate) related to cannabis, they have decided on a total ban of dispensaries, including delivery services, which they somehow consider, a threat to public safety.
Understand that Vista has already passed this ban. They are planning on closing the dispensaries and are also banning delivery. Bill Gore, our sheriff, who runs unopposed each time (someone run against this ass!) plans on having his deputies arrest the drivers as drug dealers. At a private meeting with Vista city council, the Vista mayor, and our shady sheriff, the words, "we don't care about marijuana patients" literally passed their lips. They prefer that you go back to pills and the increased chance of death.
The closest "legal" dispensary is in Santee. Do you think you should have to drive 3 hrs round trip to get your medicine?
I have also contacted the governor about an amendment to this part of the law, stating that the restrictions he wants to implement for medical marijuana sound wonderful for recreational use, but asking a medical patient to drive 3 hrs or more for their medicine, not only violates each and every one of our civil rights, it also is impossible. A cancer patient, a bedridden patient, a migraine patient in the middle of a migraine, and so on, not only would be unable to get their meds, they most certainly couldn't get them safely, if forced to drive themselves, while so ill.
Do whatever you have to do to be there. If you can explain how much cannabis has improved your life, we need you there.
Prior to the meeting, I ask that each of you email and call each and every member of the city council. Tell them that they are not fulfilling their mission statement. "The City Council's mission is to represent the citizens of Oceanside, make policy decisions, exercise fiscal responsibility and authority, serve the best interests of all citizens, and ensure that Oceanside is a desirable place to live, work, do business, and to visit."
They are not even considering your needs as a patient. We should be able to obtain our meds as easily as going to CVS or a liquor store. We all know the abundance of alcohol in Oceanside. We want to have a patient collective and have the meds available for our patients thru our office, as every other physician is allowed to have a pharmacy in their office.
Please write and tell them that you want delivery services and storefronts in Oceanside with as easy access as the liquor stores and pharmacies. Tell them that they are violating your civil rights. Tell them that only those who side with marijuana patients will be voted back into office.
The city council doesn't seem to understand how many of us there are. Please forward this email to anyone you know in Oceanside who is a cannabis patient, so that there are hundreds, if not thousands of us at the meeting on January 20th. The exact time is not yet known, but for the last meeting, they had the hour for discussion listed at 6, instead of 5. With the lack of integrity rampant on that council, they tried to keep us from our chance to speak.
Mayor Jim Wood, was the son of a Navy Corpsman. Navy corpsman are usually the only members of the Navy who return with PTSD. You would think he would be understanding that our 5000+ PTSD patients need access to their meds. Instead, his law enforcement background causes him to deny you your rights. The built-in bias, is yet another reason that the mayor should be censured. He tried to censure me 3 times during the meeting. He asked to have me removed 3 times. It didn't happen.
Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery is the only one on city council who was in favor of the ban. He understands that we have a right to access our meds. Lowery works with autistic and disabled people, and I believe he understands how helpful cannabis is for these people.
Esther Sanchez seemed to be swayed by what we all said. She spoke of a close friend who chose to use cannabis when she was being treated for cancer, and she understood that it was the only thing that helped her friend. She spoke of voting for the ban, but, working on an ordinance that would work for the patients of Oceanside, but with one word from Council member Kern, she immediately voted for the ban. She was a public defender for yours. Please appeal to her sense of concern that others be able to obtain their meds, just as her friend was able to do so. Not everyone has a caregiver or someone else at home who can travel to get their meds for them. Remind her of this. She also made a comment about how there are so many delivery services in the city that are unlicensed, therefore, unregulated. City of Oceanside will not issue a license, even for a delivery service, but they wonder why there are so many operating without a license???? Also, stress how ridiculous this policy of not issuing business licenses keeps tax dollars and businesses from our city.
Jerry Kern professes to want what's best for ALL of the citizens of Oceanside, yet he doesn't even have any empathy for his fellow vets. Kern got a very cushy assignment while in the Air Force. He served in Great Britain and Camp Pendleton. It's highly unlikely that he has PTSD, but he shows no concern for the high saturation of vets in Oceanside and that they need access to their meds.
Jack Feller is also a vet. He enlisted in the Navy and got the very dangerous assignment at the Naval dental clinic on Camp Pendleton. Again, zero empathy for his fellow vets. Jack is originally from South Dakota, and he can't seem to leave his marijuana bias back in his home state.

Call over and over. Email over and over.
Finally, make sure you are registered to vote. For every election, Michelle and I try to post on our website and in our office, what candidates are for or against cannabis. Please let them know that they can say goodbye to their careers as politicians, if this ban is imposed on us. Let them know you are a voter and most certainly, get out there and vote.

I am going to ask that city council hold a town hall meeting. I don't want the Mayor to try to censure me again, nor should he be able to censure any of us. It was disgusting and horrifying to watch the city council vote for the ban with 30+ against and only 1 person present for the ban.
It is also imperative that you call and write to the Governor. Let Gov. Brown know that he cannot allow the cities to ban the dispensaries, as it will cause medical patients to need to drive for hours for meds. If they want to make it unobtainable for recreational use, that's fine. However, don't keep us from our meds. There is a form on the website that gets your requests to the Governor.
https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php
I know we promised no emails except for your annual reminder, but this is just too important.
Yours truly,
Dr. Paula Shore
TL;DR Local City Council votes to ban delivery services, equating delivery drivers to drug dealers, show up and speak out if you can, thanks for reading everyone.

So, with 30+ against and 1 for, the city council voted for the ban. Only Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery was swayed by our argument and voted against the ban.
They have voted to not allow delivery services in "their" city, saying that "they know that the majority of the citizens of Oceanside don't want marijuana in their town." Again, these so-called people for the ban, had the same opportunity to have their voices heard and didn't bother.
Speak out for your rights or they will be lost forever. Please come to Oceanside city hall before 5 PM on January 20th and ask for a "request to speak" form. The bylaws on the city council website, state that each person shall have "a maximum of three minutes" and that any person can give their time to another person who is speaking. Although it uses the word "maximum", it later says that MORE time can be given at the discretion of the presiding officer, but it NEVER says that they can give us LESS time or that they can deny us the right to give our time to someone else. Despite this, Mayor Wood attempted to allow only 1 minute to speak. Esther Sanchez, suggested that we be allowed at least 2 minutes, so that we may actually have a chance to say what we intend. When Michelle tried to give her time to one of our elderly patients, Jimbo said that we cannot give our time to others.
I carefully reviewed the entire City Council manual, policy and procedures, and it does not state this anywhere. When a city council member does not follow the procedures and protocol, we have the right to ask that the member be censured. I ask that all patients come to the meeting and request that Mayor Wood be censured for not following the policies concerning the public's right to speak.
The only person who voted to oppose the ban was Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery, and if you care about your rights, he should be the only one who we re-elect. Let us not forget that Jim Wood doesn't even want to be mayor any longer. He ran for county supervisor and only begrudgingly returned to his post as mayor because he lost. Let's let him know that we don't want him any longer.
What the ban entails......any delivery driver providing medical cannabis, if "caught" in Oceanside, will be subjected to arrest, as a drug dealer. That's right, those people who are there to help you in safe access of your medicine, will be arrested. A representative of Oceanside police department, one that Michelle and I have personally spoken with about his desire for cannabis when he retires, got up and lied about the marijuana-related incidents in Oceanside.
He says the police are for the ban because of the great number of crimes it has caused. They claimed that there were 45 crimes related to cannabis in the city since 2012. So, over 3 years, an average of 15/year.
Statistics for alcohol related incidents, including death, DUI, fights, etc., reached over 582. In response to this, the city council voted to increase the number of hours that a person can drink publicly. Casinos are now allowed to start serving drinks at 8 am, instead of 10 am. So, 582 alcohol incidents, and they increase access to alcohol, and with 45 (which is in overestimate and not accurate) related to cannabis, they have decided on a total ban of dispensaries, including delivery services, which they somehow consider, a threat to public safety.
Understand that Vista has already passed this ban. They are planning on closing the dispensaries and are also banning delivery. Bill Gore, our sheriff, who runs unopposed each time (someone run against this ass!) plans on having his deputies arrest the drivers as drug dealers. At a private meeting with Vista city council, the Vista mayor, and our shady sheriff, the words, "we don't care about marijuana patients" literally passed their lips. They prefer that you go back to pills and the increased chance of death.
The closest "legal" dispensary is in Santee. Do you think you should have to drive 3 hrs round trip to get your medicine?
I have also contacted the governor about an amendment to this part of the law, stating that the restrictions he wants to implement for medical marijuana sound wonderful for recreational use, but asking a medical patient to drive 3 hrs or more for their medicine, not only violates each and every one of our civil rights, it also is impossible. A cancer patient, a bedridden patient, a migraine patient in the middle of a migraine, and so on, not only would be unable to get their meds, they most certainly couldn't get them safely, if forced to drive themselves, while so ill.
Do whatever you have to do to be there. If you can explain how much cannabis has improved your life, we need you there.
Prior to the meeting, I ask that each of you email and call each and every member of the city council. Tell them that they are not fulfilling their mission statement. "The City Council's mission is to represent the citizens of Oceanside, make policy decisions, exercise fiscal responsibility and authority, serve the best interests of all citizens, and ensure that Oceanside is a desirable place to live, work, do business, and to visit."
They are not even considering your needs as a patient. We should be able to obtain our meds as easily as going to CVS or a liquor store. We all know the abundance of alcohol in Oceanside. We want to have a patient collective and have the meds available for our patients thru our office, as every other physician is allowed to have a pharmacy in their office.
Please write and tell them that you want delivery services and storefronts in Oceanside with as easy access as the liquor stores and pharmacies. Tell them that they are violating your civil rights. Tell them that only those who side with marijuana patients will be voted back into office.
The city council doesn't seem to understand how many of us there are. Please forward this email to anyone you know in Oceanside who is a cannabis patient, so that there are hundreds, if not thousands of us at the meeting on January 20th. The exact time is not yet known, but for the last meeting, they had the hour for discussion listed at 6, instead of 5. With the lack of integrity rampant on that council, they tried to keep us from our chance to speak.
Mayor Jim Wood, was the son of a Navy Corpsman. Navy corpsman are usually the only members of the Navy who return with PTSD. You would think he would be understanding that our 5000+ PTSD patients need access to their meds. Instead, his law enforcement background causes him to deny you your rights. The built-in bias, is yet another reason that the mayor should be censured. He tried to censure me 3 times during the meeting. He asked to have me removed 3 times. It didn't happen.
Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery is the only one on city council who was in favor of the ban. He understands that we have a right to access our meds. Lowery works with autistic and disabled people, and I believe he understands how helpful cannabis is for these people.
Esther Sanchez seemed to be swayed by what we all said. She spoke of a close friend who chose to use cannabis when she was being treated for cancer, and she understood that it was the only thing that helped her friend. She spoke of voting for the ban, but, working on an ordinance that would work for the patients of Oceanside, but with one word from Council member Kern, she immediately voted for the ban. She was a public defender for yours. Please appeal to her sense of concern that others be able to obtain their meds, just as her friend was able to do so. Not everyone has a caregiver or someone else at home who can travel to get their meds for them. Remind her of this. She also made a comment about how there are so many delivery services in the city that are unlicensed, therefore, unregulated. City of Oceanside will not issue a license, even for a delivery service, but they wonder why there are so many operating without a license???? Also, stress how ridiculous this policy of not issuing business licenses keeps tax dollars and businesses from our city.
Jerry Kern professes to want what's best for ALL of the citizens of Oceanside, yet he doesn't even have any empathy for his fellow vets. Kern got a very cushy assignment while in the Air Force. He served in Great Britain and Camp Pendleton. It's highly unlikely that he has PTSD, but he shows no concern for the high saturation of vets in Oceanside and that they need access to their meds.
Jack Feller is also a vet. He enlisted in the Navy and got the very dangerous assignment at the Naval dental clinic on Camp Pendleton. Again, zero empathy for his fellow vets. Jack is originally from South Dakota, and he can't seem to leave his marijuana bias back in his home state.

Call over and over. Email over and over.
Finally, make sure you are registered to vote. For every election, Michelle and I try to post on our website and in our office, what candidates are for or against cannabis. Please let them know that they can say goodbye to their careers as politicians, if this ban is imposed on us. Let them know you are a voter and most certainly, get out there and vote.

I am going to ask that city council hold a town hall meeting. I don't want the Mayor to try to censure me again, nor should he be able to censure any of us. It was disgusting and horrifying to watch the city council vote for the ban with 30+ against and only 1 person present for the ban.
It is also imperative that you call and write to the Governor. Let Gov. Brown know that he cannot allow the cities to ban the dispensaries, as it will cause medical patients to need to drive for hours for meds. If they want to make it unobtainable for recreational use, that's fine. However, don't keep us from our meds. There is a form on the website that gets your requests to the Governor.

I know we promised no emails except for your annual reminder, but this is just too important.
Yours truly,
Dr. Paula Shore
TL;DR Local City Council votes to ban delivery services, equating delivery drivers to drug dealers, show up and speak out if you can, thanks for reading everyone.
