Volunteer petitioners needed in Alaska!
Petitioners are currently gathering signatures all over Alaska in order to qualify an initiative for the August 2014 primary-election ballot that will make possession of marijuana legal for adults and regulate its cultivation and sale in a manner similar to alcohol. At issue is whether to maintain the failed policy of marijuana prohibition or replace it with a system of taxation and sensible regulation.
As of December 1, we have collected 40,886 gross signatures, leaving 4,114 gross signatures to collect to achieve our goal of 45,000 gross signatures.
Winter is here, and time is running out, but it’s not too late to help! If you want to see this initiative on the ballot, then you should volunteer now! Please contact us right away if you’re interested in collecting signatures.
If you are a resident of Alaska, a U.S. citizen, and over the age of 18, please let us know if you would like to volunteer as a petitioner! We will send you a petition booklet, clipboard, pen, and pre-stamped envelope so that you can mail in your petition booklet without any hassle. We will also work with you personally to answer any questions you may have about gathering signatures.
With your support, we can make history in Alaska! Passage of this initiative would not only make Alaska the third state to tax and regulate recreational marijuana, but it would provide much needed clarity to Alaska’s current marijuana laws, which are complex and counterproductive.
Support the initiative today by volunteering to circulate a petition, or donate to the campaign so that we can hire paid petitioners. In addition, talk to your friends and family about why Alaska needs to pass this initiative! You can learn more about the initiative by visiting the campaign’s website or by contacting us at email@example.com.
