First Oregon Norml totally blows it by failing to organize in a more professional manner when they failed to kick off the campaign in a timely manner and then Paul Stanford fails to come through (with just a small part of the millions he has made) and leaves the campaign without any viable funding with just a few weeks to gather thousands and thousands of signatures. The 2010 version of OCTA was obviously not a serious effort and it is pointless to tell people to sign this petition.
