It was great to set up at the annual Pennsylvania Farm to Table event - unfortunately I thought we had a 10x10 booth & not an 8x3 ft booth so I'm not sure if we'll be able to make it again.

Giving Thanks

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Everyday I am thankful, on this particular Holiday in 2015 without my family, friends, business associates and the grace of our Creator nothing could have gotten done. It's been a struggle for 15 plus years but I see the rainbow at the end of the dark tunnel in history over hemp / cannabis prohibition. The children are growing up and not buying the same old story - we've evolved from the Just say No! mantra of Nancy Reagen to the enlightened, Just Say Know - or at least be civil and say No thank you~ choose your meat, turkey or hemp seed, it's your choice. Let's all be thankful that we can make a difference. Spread the love and thanks always. SPH

Our HQ's is changing this weekend of Thanksgiving - December 1st we should be good to go in our new location. Keep ordering through the internet - I want to hear your feedback so I can make it better.

Here is a brief excerpt of Les speaking at the Keystone Cannabis Rally - more to come; 

Here is the lobbyiest who came up from Kentucky spoke right before I did at the end of the rally; 

After vending in Detroit, Michigan and meeting folks in the medical cannabis industry helping those in need I was the last speaker at the Cannabis Keystone Rally in Support of SB1182 - it was a long drive home, short prep time and I didn't address the issue like I should have but not bad for driving 12 hours and getting 1 hour of sleep than speaking in favor of the right for parents to grow, cultivate and provide cannabis to any family member they & their doctors think will help a loved one. -
