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
