Signature Scoreboard!

Our campaign to bring safe, legal medical cannabis to Missouri patients has now collected more than 15,000 signatures, and that has only been possible thanks to the hard work of volunteer petitioners across the state. We want to acknowledge and thank every volunteer who has submitted even one signature, and some volunteers have truly gone above and beyond and deserve special recognition for the time and effort they have dedicated to this cause.

In the interest of celebrating our volunteers, we plan to periodically share with you our Volunteer Scoreboard, featuring the volunteers who have collected the most signatures. As of Monday morning, the totals for the top ten signature gatherers stand as follows:

Sink or Swim

We have raised or received hard commitments for nearly $4,000 towards the $10,000 end of quarter goal we announced on Tuesday! That's tremendous progress, but with less than 48 hours to go, we still need your help to push it across the finish line. Go here now to make a contribution to make medical cannabis a reality in Missouri!

Signature collection is going very well, but the fact is that if we can't expand our capacity by continuing to add volunteers and bringing in a signature collection company later this year, it will bust our budget and timeline. The less time we have to gather signatures at full speed, the more we must rely on paid collectors, and the higher their price will be. That makes our efforts this spring absolutely crucial to oursuccess!

If we can continue on our current trajectory, we will make the ballot, and we will win, but that will ultimately be determined by supporters like you. You can keep us on pace for victory by contributing $10, $25, $50, or $100 now!

Picking up the Pace!

As we close in on the end of March, our campaign to bring legal access to medical cannabis to Missouri patients is also closing in on 10,000 signatures turned in by volunteers. That puts us ahead of the number of volunteer signatures turned in by this point last year, when we had 8,000 at the end of March. Not only that, but we have an extra year to collect the signatures we need, meaning that we could reasonably exceed our goal of collecting half the 280,000 signatures necessary to qualify for the ballot with volunteers -- an unprecedented feat for a constitutional amendment initiative campaign!
However, to reach our full potential, we must continue expanding our capacity. Last year in April alone, volunteers turned in nearly 20,000 signatures. That's likely an overly ambitious goal without the hard deadline of the state's submission date bearing down upon us. But with the advantages of improved weather and more signature gathering opportunities, volunteers could conceivably gather 15,000 signatures in April and each month thereafter.
