Long time coming, and we’ve hated not being able to give you a specific date during these many months of preparation… …until now:

“Utah Patients Coalition officials said they will begin collecting signatures next week”….!!

“ ‘Our volunteers — many of them patients or caregivers themselves — have been ready and early waiting,’ DJ Schanz, campaign co-director for the coalition, said in a statement. ‘It feels good to know we will have scheduled events in the coming weeks for those who have waited years for this’.

Signature-gathering approval by Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox followed extensive meetings with election officials, state tax authorities, and legal and budget analysts for Gov. Gary Herbert, as well as 10 public hearings held across the state.

Utah Patients Coalition (UPC) officials praised state leaders and members of the Republican governor’s staff for adhering to a “respectful and timely schedule” in getting the initiative to this stage.

“Everyone involved worked efficiently and provided important input, helping us make sure that Utahns will vote on the best proposal possible,” said Schanz.

Washington, D.C., and 29 states — including states bordering Utah such as Nevada, Arizona and Colorado — had legalized medical marijuana in some form as of July, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.”

(…plus US territories and federations, Guam and Puerto Rico too…)


1. Only registered voters can sign the petition. You CAN REGISTER TO VOTE online. http://ift.tt/2veNILx

2. You CANNOT sign a petition for the ballot initiative online. You must sign an AUTHORIZED petition IN PERSON, and must in the presence of a registered signature collector. We’ll publish more about any established locations, events, etc. as we learn of them.

3. If you’ve signed anything up until now, you haven’t signed anything that matters in qualifying the petition. Watch out for scams to convince people that they have.
