Over the last 2 days this thing has really taken off!! Being my first change.org petition I had no idea how “donations” work. Now I do!
When you donate, Change.org dedicates those funds to promoting this petition via paid online adds. This seems to really be working as we went from 0-200 in just over a week and then 200-nearly 600 in just a couple of days!
I really appreciate every donation and anything else you can do to share this and just spread the word. One way you can do so is by reaching out to your 3 state delegates, 1 state senator and Gov Hogan with the message that the status quo is unacceptable and that we need home-grow now! Ask them directly as to whether they think that patients who can not afford astronomical dispensary prices should be subject to felony conviction for growing the very same plant as the overpriced state run oligopoly!!
Our politicians are invariably uninformed or misinformed since the loudest voices have as yet been from anti-cannabis “concerned citizens” and our ever concentrating pool of cannabis cultivators.*
My goal is to have as many signatures as possible before meeting with legislators in Annapolis this upcoming February 4. Please contact me if you will able to join me for that effort!
Thanks again for all the support!
*though we have 15 cultivator licenses Verano was recently acquired by Arizona based Harvest Health we are down to 14 owners. Massachusetts based CuraLeaf is in the process of acquiring Chicago based Grassroots which will bring us down to 13 ownership groups.
