The Finish Line Is In Sight!

We have been hard at work collecting signatures to put medical cannabis on the November ballot for over a year now. But that long journey will come to an end in just a few short weeks.

When the constitutionally mandated May 6 deadline for submitting signatures rolls around, we will either succeed by turning in 170k valid signatures, or we will fail to make the ballot. We all want this campaign to succeed, but wanting it alone is not enough.

Success must be chosen, and it requires hard work and sacrifice. You can choose to help medical cannabis succeed in Missouri by contributing $100, $50, or $25 now and signing up to attend a volunteer event!

To successfully close out signature collection, we hope to raise $15k from grassroots donors online in the month of March. And we are off to a great start, as we have already raised nearly $1,000 in grassroots contributions in the first three days of the month!

Help us reach our goal and put medical cannabis on the ballot by contributing now. We have a golden opportunity to help patients and make Missouri history, but it is up to us to seize that opportunity. Contribute now to be a part of the movement!

March Events

In the month of March, you will have three exciting opportunities to both support our campaign for medical cannabis and learn about the positive changes that our amendment can bring to Missouri patients and the state as a whole.

First, on March 23, the Missouri Cannabis Industry Association will host a conference to benefit the campaign at the City Place Hotel in downtown Saint Louis. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m., and the ticket price includes lunch and entrance to the expo. This will be the perfect event for anyone in the Midwest who has an interest in the emerging cannabis industry.

The featured speakers at this conference will include: Aaron Smith, co-founder and Executive Director of the National Cannabis Industry Association, the largest trade association representing legal cannabis businesses in the U.S., John Downs of The ArcView Group;  Mark Slaugh, founder and Chief Executive Officer of iComply, LLC, John Foley, Chief Financial Officer of MediPays, a company which provides financial services to the Cannabis Industry; Coltyn Turner, patient and advocate; Jack Cardetti and myself from the New Approach Missouri campaign; and Mitch Meyers, CEO of BeLeaf.

All the proceeds from this conference will benefit the campaign. Early bird pricing ends on March 13, so purchase your tickets now!

Then, on Wednesday March 28th, we will host John Hunt at the Springfield Brewing Company from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. John is originally from Webster Groves, Missouri, and he has worked in the regulated Colorado cannabis market since 2008 as a patient and caregiver.

After setting up the first licensed cannabis testing facility, Steep Hill Labs, in Denver, he set out to expand his portfolio into the dispensary, cultivation, and extraction market. He works in numerous states with different brands for business development, logistics, and branding. Currently, he is working with a group to become licensed in Conway, Arkansas, and has long advocated for medical cannabis in Missouri. He has a background in accounting, business management, and cultivation and is also a partner in Hunt's Harvest Nutrients, which manufactures and distributes nutrients for cultivation of all plants nationwide.

Tickets are on sale now, and only 80 are available. They are selling quickly, so go here to contribute for the event now before it's too late. Discounted tickets for the event are available to volunteers who are gathering signatures. Contact me at if you qualify and are interested in that option.

Finally, on Thursday, March 29, Dr. Jason Strotheide will speak at the Metropolitan Grill beginning at 5:30 p.m. Dr. Strotheide is the founder and president of Noah's Arc Foundation of Missouri (NAFMO), which is one of two Missouri license holders for the growing and extraction of Industrial Hemp and manufacturing/dispensing of CBD oil. From the outset, NAFMO has striven to be the “gold standard” for environmentally conscious cultivation, extraction, and manufacturing in Missouri.

As the founder and CEO of an FDA-registered and Health Canada approved nutraceutical company, Dr. Strotheide possesses a wealth of knowledge and expertise relating to federal manufacturing guidelines/standards, quality assurance, quality control, and lot/batch control. Dr. Stroheide will speak on the realities of the current CBD program and how we can expect that the New Approach Missouri amendment to create greater opportunities and options for providers and patients alike.

There are limited tickets available, so go here to RSVP and make your contribution now!

We hope to see you at one (or more!) of these events this coming month!
