Dear President Eisgruber:

Our organization has joined with Cannabis Voter Project @CannaVoterProject to conduct a Get Out the Vote campaign and we ask for your support in our efforts.

We believe that the general elections on November 3, 2020 present the perfect opportunity to engage young people in the civic process by encouraging them to register and vote. In addition to candidates for public offices, voters will be asked to approve the following ballot question:

Do you approve amending the Constitution to legalize a controlled form of marijuana called “cannabis”? Only adults at least 21 years of age could use cannabis.

Cannabis reform currently has the support of over 70% of young adults in the state for very compelling reasons. Given the enormous therapeutic potential of cannabis, legalizing the adult use of this drug is the best way to get the right medicine to the most people. Additionally, the decades-long prohibition of cannabis has proven to be ineffective, harmful, and unnecessary given the relatively few dangers associated with its use by adults.

Even if you do not support cannabis reform, we are certain that you share our goal of encouraging students on your campus to register and vote. Would you please put us in touch with a member of your administration to help with this project? Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely yours,

Ken Wolski, RN, MPA
