PETITION TO THE STATE OF COLORADO 

CANNABIS AGAINST COVID: HERB FOR THE CURE

We are petitioning the State of Colorado to make it a priority to pass legislation that raises tens of millions of dollars for Coronavirus pandemic relief, through reform of cannabis policy. 

Specifically to allow the home delivery of recreational cannabis as soon as possible, adding a delivery fee that would raise immediate funds for the COVID-19 crisis. 

Home delivery of recreational cannabis is currently not permitted in the state of Colorado.

A simple delivery fee added on top to every home delivery, in addition to pre-existing taxes, could raise important capital extremely quickly. 

This would provide an immediate source of revenue, which would go directly to Coronavirus aid, helping save lives and start to get Colorado back to business. 

In 2019, there was an average of 25,000 cannabis transactions a day in Colorado. So, for example, a $20 per delivery fee could amount to as much as $500,000 raised EVERY SINGLE DAY to fight Coronavirus. 

Even just 5,000 deliveries a day would amount to $100,000 every single day raised to fight COVID-19.

That would add up to tens of millions of dollars very quickly, which would go directly to the front lines for the fight against COVID-19. 

We suggest that these funds be collected and distributed by Governor Jared Polis’ Colorado COVID Relief Fund.

For historically being ahead of the curve, Colorado is very much behind on this issue. Many people would prefer not to go to dispensaries, for fear of getting sick.

But if delivery were possible, they’d continue to support an important industry for Colorado - while simultaneously fighting COVID-19 with each delivery charge.

We are working on cultivating a day-long online culture festival, featuring a long list of musicians / comedians / artists / and celebrity spokespeople performing from their home studios under quarantine. 

The stream will be free, and the intention is to generate interest in this cause, and collect as many signatures on this petition as possible. Some world-famous musicians have already expressed interest. 

We believe this campaign can similarly be applied to other states, and would have an immediate impact on the front lines of hospitals nationwide.

If legalization were done on a national level, it would create millions of jobs - and billions of dollars in revenue. Both of which are badly needed by our current economy, which is ravaged by coronavirus. 

This is an unprecedented crisis for America.

And there has never been a better time to legalize cannabis.
