Greeting CSPARC Supporters, Volunteers, and Signature Gathering Peoples,
This is the final week we will be paying cash for signatures. All signatures need to be turned in by 5:00 pm on Thursday to get paid. They can be turned in to 2045 Hallmark Drive, Suite 6 in Sacramento 95825 (Map Below).
If you are volunteering to collect signatures PLEASE TURN THEM IN TOO! We need to do a final count this Friday and see if we will make the November ballot so it is IMPERATIVE that we get all signatures in this week! If you have one signature or one-hundred PLEASE bring them in. If you need one of us to come pick them up, email or call us and we will make arrangements.
We are hopeful that there are tens of thousands of signatures left in the field that will push us over the edge. The reality is that it will have to be a pretty huge effort for us to make our goal of turning them in next Monday, so that we may qualify for the November ballot. But even if we are still short come Friday, we WILL be carrying on a volunteer basis and there will still be a big push to get the needed signatures and still qualify for either a special election or the following election cycle. So regardless, you can still help us fight to return patients' rights to Sac County until Sunday, July 22nd. Our final final turn in day, if we need it, will be Monday July 23rd.
It has been a difficult campaign season to say the least. Eight statewide ballots were circulating paying up to $3-4 per signature. It has been difficult to compete for limited manpower in the signature industry in such a heavy election cycle. We are hopeful there are a lot of signatures out there unaccounted for that will come in this week and push us over the edge. We shall see. Regardless, it has been a awesome effort by a dedicated group of volunteers, donors, supporters, and friends that have come together and continued the fight for cannabis freedom.
Whatever happens, this campaign has educated many and opened many eyes to the injustice of the situation in Sacramento County. It has been inspiring to see so many in the community step up in these chaotic times to do the work and make this campaign happen. There has been no shortage of roadblocks along our way, with dozens of collectives closing and an all out assault on our community like we have not seen in years. The County of Sacramento can be proud of the people who stepped up in the face of agression and helped us to craft a great initiative that we will hopefully be able to make law sooner than later.
So get those petitions in this week. We will be sending out an email late Friday with more info on where we are, and where we will be going from there. Thank you all so much. Those who have participated and helped this happen are all heroes and I cannot personally thank you enough for your efforts.
Sacramento, CA 95825
