As you know, Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed SB 5052.
This law will eliminate all the existing medical marijuana collective gardens and access points and force patients into the recreational system. A group of brave Patients have stepped forward to file a Referendum on behalf of ALL PATIENTS to stop this unjust law.
The Referendum is R76 and they need our help. Starting May 11, the MMJ community of Washington has 70 days to collect 123,000+ signatures needed to put the Referendum on the November ballot. We need every MMJ grower, every supplier and every MMJ point of access to unite and send a message to the public.
The message is that we will protect the existing access points and continue to fight for Patients’ Rights.
The authors of the Referendum need our help.
They need MONEY, volunteers, and signatures.
They also need what money can’t buy. They need US, the ENTIRE patient community to finally stop bickering and complaining and unite to defeat SB 5052.
“The Northwest Cannabis Market declares today our support for R76,” said Michael Keysor, CEO of NW Cannabis Market. “We will be kicking off our support with a ‘Volunteer Day’ Rally Sunday, May 17th, starting at 5 PM. We’ll be serving hot dogs and snacks.”
Stop by the NW Cannabis Market to pick up your volunteer packages and sign the petition.
Bring friends and relatives. This is open to the public.
R76NO volunteers will be asking for donations and signatures.
“The future of the MMJ Industry and the access of patients is at stake,” Keysor said. “We need to rise to the challenge. Continue to support your MMJ Provider. Give them the courage and means to continue what they do. Stand united.”
Do it TODAY!!!
The clock is ticking.
