I received the following campaign update out of Missouri:

I just finished tabulating our signature totals from June, and in that month alone our volunteers gathered 11,000 signatures! We have now collected a total of more than 42,000 signatures to place medical cannabis on the ballot in Missouri!

Since the spring, volunteers have consistently produced more than 10,000 signatures each month. Gathering that many signatures in a single month is impressive, but we’ve proven that we can do it consistently, which is truly remarkable.

Few campaigns can claim this kind of grassroots support, but these volunteers form the bedrock of our campaign and keep it moving forward every single day. Will you support them and our effort to bring medical cannabis by contributing $10, $25, or $50 now?

We want to give special acknowledgement to the ten outstanding volunteers who gathered the most signatures in June:

10. Sara Campbell: 354
9. Karin Chester: 385
8. Daryl Bertrand: 452
7. Michael Votaw: 562
6. Jennifer Shockley: 575
5. Damien Johnson: 683
4. Kyle Kisner: 751
3. Trish Bertrand: 824
2. Laird Wilcox: 958
1. Ann Rohan: 1,375

Combined, these petitioners gathered 6,919 signatures last month, accounting for more than 60 percent of the total! Help them continue their dedicated work by making a contribution of $10, $25, $50 or more now.

When the numbers from June are added in to our running total, the top ten signature gatherers stand as follows:

10. Lance Lenau: 984
9. Laird Wilcox: 1,145
8. Daryl Bertrand: 890
7. Damien Johnson: 1,349
6. Kyle Kisner: 1,361
5. Doug Keeth: 1,508
4. Jennifer Shockley: 1,632
3. Chris Chesley: 2,248
2. Trish Bertrand: 2,844
1. Ann Rohan: 4,637

Support these volunteers and help make medical cannabis a reality in Missouri by contributing $10, $25, $50, or more now! Or you can pledge your support for the entire campaign by signing up for a recurring contribution of $5, $20, or $50 here. And if you have not yet signed, look for a location near you on our website.

Our campaign has grown tremendously since we started gathering signatures six months ago, but it never would have gotten off the ground without the tireless efforts of our volunteers and the steadfast support of people like you. Contribute now to forge ahead and bring medical cannabis to Missouri patients!

Sincerely,
John Payne
Campaign Manager
