Hi there,

Recently, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released her plan for fully legalizing marijuana as part of her presidential campaign. Kirsten’s plans to legalize marijuana at the federal level would create economic opportunities nationwide.

No plan put forth has been more explicit about ending the federal prohibition and decriminalizing recreational use. You can check out her full plan here and read the reaction of an industry leader here.

I’m writing to you in support of her plan and her bold and brave leadership on this issue that I know we care deeply about.

It’s still early — you may not be ready to settle on one candidate in such a diverse, crowded and accomplished field. But Kirsten hasn’t yet hit the 130,000 donors she needs to secure her spot in the second round of debates, and I know that she’ll carry this issue with her if we get her on that stage. If you agree, will you make a donation of any amount to her campaign right now? Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/2QMoJrq

If you’re feeling really fired up, consider forwarding this email along to your own networks asking for the same. Let me know if you want to talk more about my support for Kirsten – always happy to share!

Brave wins!
