Marijuana Legalization Proponents Need More Money for Petitioners.

by Rep. Bill Post

The comments section of these stories is always worth reading, this time it’s pointed out that $150k is "not enough to hire petition signature gatherers". Gee, I always thought that volunteers did this? I know, many pay for these things and it’s successful most of the time but I prefer real grassroots (no pun intended) volunteer based signature gathering was the real way that Oregonians could show they care about a topic. Such as the driver’s card issue?
