The confernece was in danger of being cancelled when sponsors pulled out over controversy for using federal grant money to bring in speakers to speak against marijuana.

 

Oregon voters will be voting on Meausre 91 to legalize marijuana in the state this November.

 

Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins told News Channel 21 a ten thousand dollar donation will keep the event on track.

 

"The Oregon State Sheriff's Association stepped up and basically saved the day and has provided a total of 15-thousand to get this summit off and running."

 

Best Care Treatment had pulled out last week after pressure from Measure 91 supporters who objected to federal funds being used to bring in speakers.

 

Local leaders have raised the 15-thousand that best care was to provide, so the summit should go on the first week of October.
