Our America Launches Signature Drive to Put Medical Cannabis on the Ballot in Utah
November 15, 2017, Salt Lake City, UT -- The Our America Initiative, a national organization which advocates for the protection of civil liberties and personal freedom, has launched a signature drive to help put a comprehensive medical cannabis program on the November, 2018, ballot in Utah.
Our America joins the Utah Patients Coalition, TRUCE, the Libertas Institute and other Utah organizations in the effort to gather almost 114,000 signatures from registered voters across the state and place the Utah Medical Cannabis Act before voters next year.
Former New Mexico Governor and presidential candidate Gary Johnson serves as Honorary Chairman of the Our America Initiative. The organization began circulating petitions November 13, and hopes to secure at least 20,000 of the required signatures by January.
29 States and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to allow individuals access to the cannabis for medical purposes.
The Our America Initiative is a 501(c)4 advocacy organization with members and chapters in all 50 states. More information can be found at www.OurAmericaInitiative.com.
