Fundraising Continues as a Major Sponsor Pulls Out from an Anti Drug Summit in Madras


A major sponsor of the event, "Best Care Treatment" pulled out last week after pressure from Measure 91 supporters, who felt the summit would influence the upcoming election.

 

D.A. Steve Leriche says this annual summit has nothing to do with Measure 91 that voters will be voting on this November, that would legalize marijuana.  

 

Leriche says he took offense when Measure 91 supporters overreacted to the conference.

 

"I'm definitely not a statewide warrior trying to be anti Measure 91 or anti-marijuana.  I think my biggest concern is that this is Jefferson County, in my backyard and we can have the kinds of conversatiosn we think are appropriate without any outside influence."

 

Best Care was sponsoring the event and helping pay to bring in speakers for the summit.

 

D.A. Leriche and others are trying to raise 15-thousand dollars in the next couple weeks so the event can go on.  So far, they've raised three thousand toward that goal.
