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:
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.”
Calendar of Events
Summer is here, and that means our campaign for medical cannabis is moving into high gear. We have already gathered more than 30,000 volunteer signatures and will soon add a paid firm to expand our capacity and ensure that we qualify for the ballot well before our submission deadline.
Join us on Wednesday, June 28 in the Crown Room of the Schlafly Bottleworks at 7260 Southwest Avenue starting at 5:30 p.m. to support the tens of thousands of Missouri patients who could benefit from legal access to medical cannabis. You will also learn more about the campaign's strategy to make the ballot and win on Election Day and how you can get more involved!
Discounted tickets are available for volunteers. If you are interested in that option and have submitted signatures, please contact John Payne at email@example.com. A contribution of any amount is welcome, but, in accordance with campaign finance laws, we ask that you do not pay in cash.
