This is it: the final push of our signature campaign.

If you haven’t signed already, the deadline to sign at one of our permanent signing locations is April 15th. You can findCandace.jpg a map of all locations statewide here or go to our regional maps for Saint Louis, Kansas City, Springfield/Joplin, and Mid-Missouri.

We will still be collecting signatures at events for a short time after April 15, but we will begin final pick ups from our signing locations next Monday, April 16, so ACT NOW! If you have already signed the petition, please share this message with your friends and family and make sure they sign before it is too late.

If you’ve been assisting with gathering signatures, we need you to have them notarized and turned in by April 18th.

You can turn in notarized signatures to your volunteer coordinator or ship them to me at 3505 Illinois Avenue, Saint Louis, MO 63118 via UPS, FedEx, or priority mail. (Please do not send them via first class mail, as they may not arrive in time if you do!) If you need help finding a notary, email and I will be happy to assist you.

Finally, can you contribute $25 now to finish signature collection strong?

On behalf of our entire campaign team, I want to thank you personally for your help and support. This is truly a grassroots effort led by hundreds of volunteers from every corner of our state.

With your continued help we will be certified for the ballot and win in November.

250K Signatures!

Share this

We have collected 250,000 signatures -- a major milestone for our petition drive to place medical cannabis on November’s ballot!

250,000 Missourians have taken the first step, but we need your help to keep this momentum going.

We are quickly closing in on the key number of signatures we need, but now the campaign gets much more difficult – and more expensive to maintain. As we approach the number of signatures required in each congressional district, it becomes harder and harder to find people who haven’t already signed.

Despite this challenge, our petitioners gathered nearly 6,000 signatures over the weekend – an impressive number, and we are so grateful.

Can you donate $60 right now in honor of our St. Patrick’s Day volunteers?


Just Two More Days!

I’ll make this quick.

On Friday, March 23rd we are hosting the 2018 MCIA Cannabis Industry Conference in downtown St. Louis. It will be a great day, filled with speeches from industry leaders, workshops and a great opportunity to receive an update on how our campaign is building momentum.

Reserve your early purchase ticket right now before prices go up after midnight tomorrow.

I’ve recorded a short video to tell you all about the conference. I hope you can join me and hundreds of supporters across the state for this important meeting on March 23rd.

Get your early purchase ticket and I’ll see you there!

PS: When you get your early purchase ticket, be sure to RSVP on our Facebook event and help us spread the word!



The Finish Line Is In Sight!

Share this

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!
