  Hi Coalition Members!!! I had to take a break to fight what I now know was Diffuse and Follicular Large B Cell Lymphoma. Most of you know I exclusively used Cannabis oils since 2010 for the tumor I had on my kidney. Last Christmas 2013 two new tumors in my neck went into full flare. I switched the Cannabis oil I was taking to another method using coconut oil and during that time, finally broke down and consulted UNC for a biopsy. I told the Doctors what I took and they were shocked I was still alive because the diffuse Lymphoma I had usually kills within six months to a year, and I had been walking around with it since 2009. Good news is...I am alive and well, my Cannabis oil use is documented at both UNC and Duke Medicine whom I ended up choosing for chemotherapy for the diffuse in conjunction with many natural diet changes, a few supplements and of course, my Cannabis oil. I only had to do four chemo treatments, instead of the standard six, and my 90 day checkup Oct 1, 2014 was clear!!!! So I am on my way back and ready to update this site, a lot is going on, and get back to educating those that don't realize that Cannabis saves lives <3 One Love.... 

Your Leading Source for Cannabis/Hemp Legislation in the Carolinas

Carolina Cannabis Coalition
During the 2014 Legislative Short session I had an opportunity to speak with the Leader of the NAACP and the Moral Monday Protests about my experience with Cannabis and Cancer. He listened, but did he hear? I plan to schedule another meeting with him to present my Medical records and talk about it some more...........

Thank you for your interest and your support into the vital issues that surround the Prohibition of Cannabis. Join the Coalition and be a part of the solution. On this home page are links to our facebook pages and other sites of interest. Please do your part to support the End of Cannabis Prohibition in the United States and the Carolinas. Thank YOU!


 Our mission is to be a common sense voice in the Carolinas to support changes in Cannabis/Hemp Legislation and Industry. All Carolina and any other citizens are invited to join and keep up with the latest on what is happening in regards to Medical , Industrial, and adult recreational use law. The Founder and Executive Director, Rebecca Forbes has been both politically and educationally active in NC for nearly two years now, as President of the NCCPN. To be more effective, she believes that the only way to true change is to End Prohibition, tax and regulate, and stop the insanity of the whole picture. Therfore, to approach the bigger picture and begin raising awareness to this now mainstream political and educational issue, she formed the Carolina Cannabis Coaliton to take a common sense look at the Prohibition of Cannabis/Hemp and all the issues surrounding it.

In just one week of founding, we were accepted into the ACC. by Craig Beresh, a man with 30+ years of experience and who recently overturned the San Diego Dispensary Ban that made history in this movement.Medical Cannabis is now legal in 21 States and Washington, DC. And we have two recreationally legal states, Colorado and Washington.  It is time for the Eastern United States and especially the Bible Belt South to come out of the ice age on this mainstream political and social issue. Get up to speed on what is soon to be one  of the largest cash crops in the United States.

  We hope to Unite and Educate our citizens to the value and necessity of Ending the Prohibition of this sacred seed and useful plant that no man or Govt. should have taken from us in the first place. The Drug War against this plant is an utter failure.. and our Org. will be the voice in the Carolinas to change it for ALL.

We are in the process of appointing Directors. Please contact me personally if you feel you have a passion for this issue, the education and skill to direct, and are willing to speak for the Org. in your area of expertise.

Please Donate to the Cause The War is not Free and if you follow my work over the last year and a half , I am a woman who will pound the highways to get this done.

Much love, waiting on the world to change.. WE can do this.. UNITED WE STAND

Thank you for your support,

Rebecca Forbes
