6:33 am
these medical marijuana collectives. this could be viewed as a halfway point. a meet in the middle >> if they do it right it could get to the right direction of control over the 130. unfortunately, a ban is the wrong approach and making it impossible for these places to operate does not get us first. >> reporter: john hughes, tonight you're going to help with this meeting. what do you want to come out of the meetinging, what kind of movement do you want to see? >> we want all of the collectives on board in starting this voter registration drive. 2012 is going to be a big election year. we're optimistic the city council is going to come up with a dignified and reasonable ordinance but we need to take measures into our own hands and be pro active and that's why we are starting a voter registration drive. >> do you see the concern that some have as far as having too many dispense areas.
6:34 am
people coming in maybe not with a legitimate note or a doctor who is sympathetic to their wanting to get stoned for recreational purposes and the city not want to have that element. >> we totally agree with the city there needs to be regulation but it needs to be reasonable. currently what they have on the books is not reasonable and is going to put most operations out of business. >> gentlemen, thank you for being up early with us. i was on the san jose website and the way they have lings planned out for the rest of the year, that by december, if everything goes to plan, they would start the application process where these collectives could apply to be one of the 10, possibly one of the 25 that would be allowed, considered to be legitimately allowed in the city. they are aiming for december. bob redell, today in the bay. >> 6:34. a northern california camp counselor is behind bars this
