Claiming to be the “greatest job producer God has ever created”, as President Donald J. Trump has done in the past, comes with a certain set of responsibilities.
Via an open letter to the White House, the long-established cannabis farm in Los Angeles has invited Trump to visit their operation “so he can see firsthand the people that his policies would affect if he were to crackdown on recreational use.”
The letter, shown in full below, was penned on behalf of Lowell Farms by Soren Gray, publisher of cannabis lifestyle magazine The New Smoker.
“Dear President Trump,
“I read the recent comments Attorney General Jeff Sessions made about recreational cannabis, and I was alarmed that your administration may be planning on putting hardworking American farmers, and many ancillary businesses, out of work, especially at a time when Americans need every job they can get.
“I publish The New Smoker, a publication devoted to highlighting the very best quality products American entrepreneurs are creating in a new, great American industry.
“I have seen so many self-reliant, hard-working, entrepreneurial Americans create new jobs and opportunities for their neighbors and friends and those who desperately need work. I have seen these great American farmers and product designers build their businesses from scratch without the help of big banking & Wall Street, all the while working against special-interest lobbyists from Big Pharma and the politicians beholden unto them.”
