The report goes on to say…

The campaign is issuing a final challenge to their volunteer base– help us collect another 50,000 signatures to finish the petition drive.

Since the campaign began in June of 2015, MILegalize has collected over 240,000 total voter signatures on petitions statewide; the state requires 252,000 valid signatures at time of turn-in to qualify for the November 2016 general election ballot.

“MILegalize has always set a goal of overachieving the target number of signatures needed,” said MILegalize Chairman, Lansing attorney Jeffrey Hank. “Besides our heroic activists, we have established contracts with two professional signature gathering firms to collect another 100,000 valid signatures from voters before the end of our drive. It’s exciting. This spring offensive is the beginning of the end of cannabis prohibition in Michigan.”
