They feel, like we do, that our grassroots campaign to bring medical marijuana to Missouri is the best option for patients.
“Two of the proposals, Amendment 2 and Proposition C, deserve support. Amendment 2, because it amends the Missouri Constitution, is preferable to Proposition C…The third initiative, Amendment 3, should be rejected.”
“Having dissected the three measures — Constitutional Amendments 2 and 3, and Proposition C — we recommend Amendment 2.
Amendment 2 is the right option for Missouri. It provides for a reasonable tax rate, puts experts in charge of the regulation, and is supported by patients, veterans, and doctors.
Help us prevail over Amendment 3 by supporting our grassroots campaign to bring medical marijuana to Missouri.
Unlike our grassroots campaign, Amendment 3 is funded by a single wealthy backer, Springfield personal injury lawyer Brad Bradshaw. He’s spending millions to pass Amendment 3, which would put a 15% tax on medical marijuana — twice as high as any other medical marijuana tax rate nationwide. It would also place Bradshaw himself in charge of marijuana licensing and allow him to direct the taxpayer dollars -- paid by patients -- to a research board that he would appoint.
We need your help to defeat Bradshaw’s plan. Help us win by donating $100, $50, $25, or whatever you can today!
We have already raised more than half of our $10,000 end of quarter goal.
Our plan is a simple, straightforward measure backed by a coalition of Missouri veterans, doctors, nurses, and patients’ groups like the Missouri Epilepsy Foundation. We will put the Missouri Department of Health in charge, not a single man, and impose only a small 4% tax that would pay for the program and go towards veterans’ services in Missouri.
The end of the fundraising quarter is approaching next Sunday, September 30 and we need to raise $10,000 to get our ad on air. Contribute whatever you can to get our message out before the election!
At this point in the campaign, it’s all about reaching as many voters as possible. We have a strong field team, but we also need to reach voters in their homes and on their phones, computers, and tablets. Without this ad and others like, we may come up short in the ballot box.
