Samaritan Health Services Puts Paper Before Patients

Calling all medical cannabis patients, and anyone who is sick and tired
of medications that make them sick and tired:

Please come to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis on Monday, July 17th
in a show of peaceful and dignified support for Nurse Ed Glick and the
hundreds of Cannabis "untouchables" who are ignored by Samaritan
Physicians because they use an herb that is forbidden by Federal Law.
Nurse Ed was fired on April 17, for refusing an unreasonable drug test,
and for putting patient care before paperwork. Come and tell Samaritan
Health Physicians to put patients first.

When: Monday July 17, gather at 7 AM until 10 AM

Where: Follow 99W or Ninth Street north through Corvallis. Parking will
be available on Maxine Avenue, half a block north of Conifer Avenue and
Ninth Street. Park 20 feet from any hydrants, please do not block
driveways. Stand in the park area on the south side of Elks Drive where
Ninth Street intersects. This is public property

Bring: Hats water, and signs. Some signs will be provided. A video
camera would be appreciated.

Do Not Bring: Violence, animals, or illegal drugs or alcohol. If you
must medicate please do so before the event out of public view.

This is a nonviolent, legal assembly.
