EDC Executive Director Resigning

While I give Mr. Carney the best of wishes, I have some advice concerning his eventual replacement.

To facilitate the potential for explosive economic growth and radical relief for the sick, suffering, and dying here in Cabarrus, the EDC should endorse and promote the following initiatives…

Encourage the Sheriff to immediately end the unconstitutional and destructive war on cannabis and declare Cabarrus County a sanctuary county for the peaceful cultivation and consumption of cannabis.

Reach out to the NC Research Campus in Kannapolis and encourage them to introduce cannabis (marijuana and hemp) into their range of natural and organic research. This would attract the best minds in cannabis science to our community, with an influx of capital investment never seen into our local economy.

Everyday cannabis prohibition continues, our state and county lose the benefits of opportunity; the opportunity to facilitate massive economic growth while alleviating the suffering of sick citizens right here at home.

We have the natural right and duty to grow our own medicines and defend the rights of our neighbors to do the same.

Ending prohibition makes economic sense.

Ending prohibition makes moral and ethical sense.

Why do our political and community leaders lack the common sense to do what is right, just, and moral?

Cabarrus County should follow Colorado’s example and get ahead of the economic curve by reintroducing hemp to our local farms and fields. We can continue to be pulled into the 21st Century or “grease the skids” and take a responsible and vibrant role in shaping the future.

An article on the Foundation for Economic Education website explains the facts behind Colorado’s success story. Michael Maharrey writes…

“A number of states have legalized hemp, but none have been as successful as Colorado. And there is one thing that sets this state apart from most of the others: an almost total disregard of federal law. While most hemp states have tried to operate their programs within federal parameters, Colorado has not. It simply set up its own commercial licensing system and let farmers go to work.

According to a Marijuana Business Daily story cited by the Daily Planet, Colorado has, “more acres in hemp, more farmers growing the crop, more processors extracting CBD from hemp and more market opportunities for selling the plant than any other state.”

In fact, last year, Colorado accounted for more than half of the country’s hemp production. The Daily Planet pinpoints one of the main reasons why. Continue reading
