NJ Marijuana Initiative Signatures Away from Qualifying for Ballot

 If you think your tax dollars and police resources would be better spent on violent crimes rather than on enforcing marijuana possession laws, now is the time to do something about it! Help is needed to make possession of marijuana the lowest law enforcement priority in New Brunswick.

Sensible New Brunswick
was created last year by local student activists who have been have been doing everything they can to make this policy change happen. They need your help to get the final petition signatures and need petitioners like you to help reach their goal in the next two weeks.

Any amount of time you can spare will really make a difference, so please  VOLUNTEER TODAY if you are interested in helping to collect petition signatures. 

Because many students have gone home for the summer, volunteers are more vital than ever to the success of this campaign. Once the required amount of signatures have been collected, then the voters of New Brunswick will be able to cast their vote on this issue during this November's election. Several cities have successfully implemented such a change in the law. Read more about lowest law enforcement priority initiatives here.

There is less than a month left until the deadline for ballot initiatives to be included on November's ballot, so please don't hesitate to contact volunteers@sensiblenewbrunswick.org to see when and where you can get involved.  

Forward this message to family and friends who might be willing/able to volunteer.
