By now, you’ve grown tired of all of the political ads across the airwaves and you’re certainly done with debates on social media. Oregonians, if you haven’t gotten your ballots in yet, be sure to get those ballots in soon to make sure that they get counted. Tuesday, October 27th, is the last day that you can safely mail in your ballot, so use a drop box after Tuesday. Personally, I urge you to vote YES on both Measure 109 and 110. Measure 109 will allow for medicinal psilocybin therapy while Measure 110 will end harmful drug possession arrests and set aside more than $100 million for more drug treatment and recovery services.
Oregon has been a pioneer on voting by mail and voting access in general, leading to high turnout rates compared to the rest of the nation and, thus far, there is record breaking turnout. Turnout is so great, that if you haven’t been bugged by a campaign volunteer yet, you soon will be. Get in your ballot and you’ll be taken off of campaign’s lists as they’ll know that your ballot has been returned.
The only bad thing about Oregon’s vote by mail system is that you don’t get an “I Voted” sticker like you do in other states. To reward yourself, and fellow voters that you care about, drop by Kind Leaf, make a purchase from the best cannabis selection in Oregon and you’ll get a limited edition sticker while supplies last! No matter how you vote, just be sure to vote and do your civic duty. To help you get through this election season, Kind Leaf will always be there for you.
Kind Leaf is a true, Oregonian small business that gives back to the local community. By supporting Kind Leaf, you are supporting Oregonians, particularly the local Pendleton area, not an out-of-state or multinational corporation. Kind Leaf always has great deals and offers discounts for seniors, veterans, OMMP patients, and for utilizing the curbside pick-up window.
