I received the following message out of Utah today:
Great news! Utah Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox officially announced yesterday afternoon that the medical cannabis ballot initiative has qualified for the November ballot. Legal medical cannabis just got one step closer to becoming a reality in Utah.
Our opponents’ attempts to stop our initiative from reaching the ballot have failed. Now the real campaign begins, and anti-cannabis crusaders are ramping up their efforts. Their strategy will be to buy TV ads and flood the airwaves with misinformation about the initiative.
The campaign needs your help to push back against the big donors who want to defeat this initiative. Please make a contribution to help fight back.
Walter J. Plumb III, owner of a pharmaceutical company, just dumped over $100,000into our opponents’ account. Plumb is a plaintiff in the lawsuit that seeks to remove the initiative from the ballot, and he also recently worked to convince voters to withdraw their signatures from the medical cannabis petition.
This is a critical time, and we need all of our supporters to pitch in. The more the campaign can raise now, the less likely it is that our opponents will continue fighting, because they’ll realize they can’t win. Please consider making a donation to send a strong message that you won’t stand by while the opposition attempts to deprive Utah patients of legal and safe access to medical cannabis.
