June Signature Scorecard

Last weekend, I finished counting the signatures from May, and I can gladly report that as of the beginning of this month, our volunteers have gathered just over 31,000 signatures to put medical cannabis on the ballot in Missouri! That makes another month of more than 10,000 volunteer signatures collected, which keeps us on target for an early qualification.

We want to again offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to the volunteers who give their time and energy and gather those signatures. In particular, these are the ten outstanding volunteers who gathered the most signatures in May:

We Must Act!

Hello my name is Lonnie. I live in Central Missouri, and I have had the pleasure of sharing my story with you over the past year. In 2007, the life I had grown accustomed to living came to an abrupt halt when I was diagnosed with a large brain mass. I often have flashbacks of that day when the neurosurgeon told me, “You have a large brain mass, and I can’t help you.”

Thankfully, there was a medical team that could help me and after an 18-hour surgery, a tumor the size of a softball was removed from my brain. After months of rehabilitation, I had to learn to do so many things I had never thought about before -- even maintaining my basic hygiene was a challenge. Despite the efforts of my medical team and another surgery in 2008, I still live with an inoperable tumor and the exhausting symptoms of the 22 surgical procedures I have endured.

$200k in Matching Funds!

I am excited to tell you that two national organizations have both committed to financially supporting our campaign with $100k in matching funds each. However, before that money can be released, we must raise a total $250k internally. We have already raised just over $150k, so that means that the next $100k we raise will make a total of $300k available to place our amendment on the ballot.
 
To to that end, we hope to raise $15k from grassroots supporters in June. Will you contribute $10, $25, or $50 now to help access this double match?
This funding would allow us to start paid signature collection later this summer and keep us on a path to victory. But first we have to demonstrate that we have the donor support here in Missouri necessary to win.
