Important announcement about petitions

Dear Friends.

I'm pleased to announce that we are starting a massive, statewide paid petition effort on July 1. 

This will join and expand on a volunteer based effort that has already collected tens of thousands of petitions.  Ultimately, 683,149 valid petitions need to be turned in to the Supervisor of Elections by January in order to make it to the ballot for the 2016 vote.  10% of that figure must be submitted to get Supreme Court review and approval.

But with your help and a few moments of your time to fill out and mail the petition - we will do it easily. (And save a lot of money that we will need to educate the public.)

We collected over a million petitions in 2014 and nearly 3.4 million people voted for the amendment.  There is no question on my mind that we will get medical marijuana back on the ballot for 2016.

The petition has only minor updates to its language - clarifying issues related to parental consent and the kinds of conditions that would qualify a potential patient, with a doctor's recommendation. 

If you haven't sent in your petition yet, please click this link, fill it out, print it, and mail it in.

Regardless - the petition collection effort will cost millions.  Anything you can contribute today will help save us from  a more expensive push closer to the deadline. 

Every $3 we collect pays for a petition. Please contribute here.
