From our friends at the Florida medical marijuana campaign:
Every week, people send us their stories: "My son had epilepsy." "My husband was in an accident and had severe nerve damage..." "The medicine I take to treat AIDS has destroyed my appetite."
In so many cases, people with legitimate, debilitating conditions were forced to do something illegal to get the care they need and deserve - and which the vast, vast majority of Floridians think they should have.
Every contribution is matched dollar for dollar by one of our major supporters through December 5th.
We have just over four weeks to collect hundreds of thousands of petitions to finally get medical marijuana on the ballot. We're going to do this through an intense volunteer effort - and the funding of many generous donors.
But it's not enough - we need your support, and we need it today:
We've collected more than 400,000 petitions. We're going to win in court and then we are going to win on the ground - but only with your help.
