Currently we have the two states Colorado and Washington that have adopted a recreational cannabis program but most states that have adopted medical and hemp farming legislation are doing so under limited guidelines. It is important that citizens who have an interest in the Federal government overturning cannabis law get involved, with organizations like Cannabis and Hemp Association. Critical. These legislation within the states are quite restrictive and confusing, leaving alot of ambiguity that keep cannabis enthusiasts, patients, and businesses guessing at what they can and cannot do. Make no mistake, cannabis and hemp enthusiasts want the plant free and legal as any food or grocery item and in order to accomplish that, activism is necessary.
When people hear the term "activism" they often picture angry radicals throwing red paint on fur coats or crazy slutty girls shaking their bare chests at a pep rally or thousands of hippies gathered smoking pot in a park on a warm summer's day. Activism is that, yes but it can also be humble, professional, and civilized. Activism just means being active in an area where you would like to see change and joining a group that operates in accordance to the way you would want to be active. Without activism we rely on our politicians to make all the right choices for us and when we do that, often times our own personal needs are not met. When you live in a free country it is our right to shape legislation and I encourage you to take advantage of it. Join the CHA if you believe in cannabis and hemp and would like to be a part of global organization that handles business the way you see it being handled on our page.
