Stop the Greed in Weed
This petition is to tell every one of our West Virginia politicians that we, the people want the funds from medical marijuana sales to be directed towards social issues which need addressed in our communities, including Alzheimer's/Senior Living, Addiction/Substance abuse (short- and long-term recovery treatment centers), Domestic Abuse Counseling (for victims and abusers - END the cycle NOW), and Job retraining for coal miners and other hard-working West Virginians who have lost their livelihood because of the greed of corporate owners or advancement of technology.
We can ALL benefit from the medical marijuana program the State implements when we work together for good. But without public support, the mass amounts of money that will go into the medical marijuana industry will go to a few individuals/companies whose only motive is to make the most profit it can off the citizens of our state like every other industry that has rushed in to pilfer us dry.
That we stand together as proud West-by-God-Virginia citizens who work too hard for what we get and are paid far less than we deserve for the same work that is done in other parts of our countries, even in neighboring states, and for no other reason than because the greedy corporations CAN GET AWAY WITH IT. And we speak with ONE VOICE to say NO MORE GREED IN WEED. Not in our state, and not on our watch!
