Today, the Republican-dominated New Hampshire House passed legislation that would make New Hampshire the 17th medical marijuana state.
The vote was a crushing 236-96, which is a veto-proof majority. And we actually needed to get a veto-proof majority, because Gov. John Lynch (D) has promised to veto our bill, just as he did in 2009.
A few weeks ago, the state Senate voted 13-11 to pass our bill, so MPP’s New Hampshire team is working furiously to get up to 16 votes in the Senate, which would be a veto-proof majority in that chamber.
Can you please make a donation today http://control.mpp.org/site/R?i=Moc2nKyG1OUfaHdfw15efg
, so that we’ll have the resources to pick up the three additional votes we need in the Senate?
Specifically, we need to commission public opinion polls in targeted Senate districts, generate emails and phone calls from constituents to their state senators, and transport patients to the state capital to lobby their state senators in person.
And, of course, our lobbying firm, MPP’s sole employee in New Hampshire, and our public relations work all cost money, too.
If we can pick up three additional votes in the New Hampshire Senate in the next couple of weeks, New Hampshire will become the 17th medical marijuana state!
Would you please donate today?
