Thank you to everyone who helped make our first Get up…Stand up event a huge success. We helped 20 people get registered to vote and received over 50 signatures on our New Approach Idaho Petition. Thank you to Eichardt’s for hosting the event, Matt King for providing the music, Blue Sky Broadcasting for radio advertising, Sandpoint Online for advertising, the Reader for printing the letter to the editor which explained the purpose of the event, and to everyone who turned out for the fun.
I will share just one story of the many that I heard at the event. One nice woman said that she nearly cried when she heard that Idaho might legalize medical marijuana some day as she has a son who has Lyme’s disease and medical cannabis has helped him regain his health. It has literally saved his life and yet she lives with the fear of the legal consequences every day.
So thank you again to everyone who helped make this a success.
