We did it! Actually YOU did it! In just a few months, more than 145,000 Oregonians signed a petition to change our approach to marijuana, and yesterday we delivered those signatures to the Oregon Secretary of State’s office for qualification. We’re confident that we have turned in more than enough signatures to qualify for the ballot. It’s truly exciting that Oregonians will have the opportunity to vote “Yes” to a smarter and more sensible approach to marijuana this November.
Public opinion is changing on marijuana, including by Oregonians and voters across the country,because treating marijuana use as a crime has failed. The enthusiastic support our signature gatherers received in neighborhoods across our great state, help show Oregonians across all walks of life are ready to consider an approach that regulates, legalizes and taxes marijuana.
We are grateful for all the work contributed to bring up to this historic moment. But this campaign will be tough and we don’t take anything for granted. We will work hard to discuss the issue all across the state. To win in November, we need your help. Please spread the word and let your friends and family know that they can learn more, show their support, sign up to volunteer and contribute to this important campaign at www.newapproachoregon.
