A good start!
It's great someone is bringing the conversation out into the open. Good works!
Behind the Truth!
I thought the show was very good. The numbers were very conservative. Many growers need to admit to what the true reason is MONEY! Food on the table. A roof over our heads. A place to call home. That does not make us criminals. That makes us Human! The Government just labels us as that. I also want to mention that I don't want to down play the medical side. That is a very serious issue that I have the upmost respect for. Thanks Again.
