“For example, we’ve achieved three huge victories in just the past 21 months — enacting medical marijuana laws through MPP’s ballot initiative in Arizona (2010), through the state legislature in Delaware (2011), and with the Drug Policy Alliance in Connecticut (2012) …
“… and we’re gearing up for as many as four more victories this fall. Specifically …
“MPP just finished funding a pair of signature drives to place medical marijuana initiatives on the North Dakota and Arkansas ballots this November 6.
“The passage of these two initiatives — plus a medical marijuana initiative that will easily pass in Massachusetts on November 6 — would increase the number of medical marijuana states from 17 to 20 in just one day.
“But there’s more: We also have a shot at passing a medical marijuana law through the Illinois Legislature in mid-November, which would become the 21st medical marijuana state.”
Progress continues in the medical marijuana realm and more and more patients get legal protections every year, despite the federal crackdown and demonization of medical cannabis.
