Amendment 2 Passes!
John Morgan, Chairman at United for Care, announces win in an email.
Nearly 4 years. Two elections. Over 2 million petitions from Florida voters. $8 million of my money. 18,238 donations from 8,287 of supporters
like you. Over $10 million spent against us, fighting compassion.
This is it. WE did it. YOU did it.
Hundreds of thousands of sick and suffering Floridians will now benefit from this law, and soon.
This was never about winning an election, although that's exactly what we did tonight. The election was a means to an end. The end was always, always always delivering compassion to those who could benefit, those desperate for the relief medical marijuana can bring.
I'm a superstitious guy. My pre-election ritual involves taking a long walk on the beach with my wife and spending Election Day and night at home.
Our campaign manager, Ben Pollara, has his election traditions too. He gets Chinese takeout with his wife the night before. Last night he sent me a picture of his fortune cookie. It read:
The will of the people is the best law.
I couldn't agree more.
The People spoke tonight.
For almost four years I've been telling you two things.
One. Compassion is coming.
Tonight, I also have two messages for you.
Compassion is HERE!!!!
And, I will always deliver this message:
Yes on 2
