Enormous news from the Florida medical marijuana campaign, see the e-mail I received below:
It's official: The Supervisors of Elections have validated enough of our submitted signatures to place us on the ballot in November - more than the 683,149 we needed and in the required number of congressional districts.
This is an amazing feat. I have to admit, less than a year ago I never thought we'd see this day - but thanks to your support and hard work, we were able to make history together. I want to thank everyone involved in this campaign - particularly our staff, donors, petition collectors and volunteers - for making this possible.
The only thing holding up official certification and placement on the ballot is the ruling by the Florida Supreme Court, which could come anytime between now and April 1.
But we can't stop for a minute - an even greater task is at hand. We must make sure that at least 60% of Florida voters support the Amendment come November 4th.
One of our key donors, Barbara Steifel, has generously offered to match any donation you make between now and 11:59 pm, January 31st.
That task is going to require a very quick ramp up of this campaign - and it's going to be expensive.
I need to raise $20,000 before the end of the month so we can get this new phase of the campaign off the ground.
Thank you, again, to everyone who helped us pass this critically important point in the campaign. Together we will bring medical marijuana to the thousands and thousands of seriously ill Floridians who are desperate for relief.
